The Philadelphia Eagles announced that they have traded offensive tackle Winston Justice to the Indianapolis Colts. The two clubs also swapped sixth-round picks as part of the trade, with the Eagles moving up from the 17th pick in that round to the 2nd. A second round pick out of USC by the Eagles in 2006, Justice has started 31 of his 47 games with the Eagles, but just one of six games in 2011, Justice became expendable following the Eagles' signing of Todd Herremans to a contract extension on Tuesday. Justice has two years and $7.125 million remaining on his current contract and is scheduled to earn $3.225 million in base salary in 2012. His trade clears $2.344 million in cap space for the Eagles.
