Free agent OT Winston Justice will visit Steelers, Browns

Steelers not done digging around the free agency market, likely in response to the fact they did not draft an offensive linemen in this past weekend's draft.


Multiple sources have reported the Steelers will meet with free agent offensive lineman Winston Justice. If no agreement is made (or the Steelers don't give him the leverage of lording a visit to the Browns over their heads), he intends to visit the Browns.

Neither the Steelers nor the Browns addressed the offensive line in the draft, although the Steelers brought in multiple undrafted free agent offensive linemen. The Steelers appear set with starters Mike Adams and Marcus Gilbert at either right or left tackle, and Kelvin Beachum started six games at right tackle last year after both Adams and Gilbert were injured. It has been said Beachum has been working inside this offseason, and could be used to bolster interior depth.

Hence, probably why the Steelers are still looking at free agency to address the coveted swing tackle position - arguably the most valuable spot on the Steelers roster.

Exactly how much cap room the Steelers have is an interesting projection. After having signed LaRod Stephens-Howling to what is thought to be a minimum deal, the team is looking at roughly $1 million in space, which would likely be enough to sign Justice.

Justice played 12 games at right tackle for the Colts in 2012. A second round pick out of USC in 2006 by Philadelphia, he was traded to Indianapolis last year.
