Posted March 14, 2012 on AP on Fox
The Colts have swapped sixth round draft picks with Philadelphia to add offensive lineman Winston Justice. Indianapolis sent the second pick in the sixth round to the Eagles for the No. 17 pick. The move could be another key part of Indy's rebuilding project. Justice has made 31 starts in five seasons with the Eagles and was originally a second round pick in, No. 39 overall, by Philadelphia. That's where new Indy general manager Ryan Grigson worked previously. The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Justice joins an offensive line that needs an upgrade inside and a veteran to help last year's top two draft picks in 2011, tackles Anthony Castonzo and Ben Ijalana. The move comes less than 24 hours after receiver Reggie Wayne agreed in principle to a new deal with Indy.
