Eagles Trade Winston Justice To Colts; Swap 6th Round Picks

The Philadelphia Eagles this offseason gave a contract extension to Todd Herremans, which made Winston Justice more expendable. The Eagles have traded Justice to the Indianapolis Colts for a swap of sixth round draft picks.

Justice was a second round pick in the 2006 NFL draft and earned one contract extension from the Eagles. He lost his starting job midway through the 2011 season and had one of the higher salary cap numbers for the Eagles heading into next season, so his departure from Philly isn't a major surprise.

The Colts have first round pick Anthony Castonzo on the left side so Justice will compete with Jeff Linkenbach and Ben Ijalana on the right side.

The big news of the week in Indy won't be this trade -- it's Reggie Wayne returning on a three-year contract.
