In the aftermath of the Ryan Clady injury, the Denver Broncos have agreed to terms with Winston Justice today; an NFL tackle with six years of experience. Clady was placed on the injured reserve today with a Lisfranc joint tear in his left foot, which will require season-ending surgery.
Justice was a second-round draftee in 2006 with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was traded to the Indianapolis Colts last year and started 12 games. All in all, he has started 43 of the 59 games he has played in his NFL tenure. Justice was also part of the 2003 USC Trojans national championship team.
In Clady’s absence, Broncos offensive line coach, Dave Magazu, has declared Chris Clark the starting left tackle for the Monday night matchup against the Oakland Raiders. Justice will provide depth to a Broncos offensive line that has seen not only Clady, but center Dan Koppen lost for the 2013 season.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Justice will receive the veteran minimum with $350,000 in performance incentives. He will wear number 77 with the Broncos.
