Justice Adjusting to Denver

Posted Sep 21, 2013

Tackle Winston Justice is working to get settled in Denver.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – With All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady moving to injured reserve, the Broncos signed veteran Winston Justice on Wednesday to add depth to the offensive line.

Justice is in this eighth season in the NFL out of USC and spent most of that time with the Eagles before playing in Indianapolis in 2012.

“He’s athletic,” Head Coach John Fox said Thursday. “He’s a guy that’s got experience in the league. He’s got a lot of starts under his belt. He was there, and we’re fortunate he was, and we’re glad he’s with us.”

Justice said that while he's still adjusting to a new team, he has enjoyed being back out on the field.

The tackle has played 59 games with 43 starts over the first six seasons of his NFL career. While 42 of those 43 starts have come at right tackle, Fox said Thursday that it’s important for tackles to be able to play on both sides of the line.

“Most of the time, I’ve been on the right,” Justice said Friday. “But in my career people have always been saying that I should play left. Now I have the opportunity to – eight, nine years into it. But I was always a right tackle. That’s where most my experience comes.”

Though the offensive scheme is brand new to him, he’s hoping to have it down in the next couple of days.

Fox said that having depth on the line is a necessity because of the nature of injuries.

“If you look at the Raiders, they’ve changed tackles already this season,” Fox said. “It’s unfortunate but it’s part of the game. It happens to everybody. You’ve got to move on. I had to remind everybody that we’ve been without two Pro Bowl players for the first two games. Again, guys have got to step up and get the job done.”
