INDIANAPOLIS – On Wednesday, Indianapolis made a move to bolster its offensive line by swapping picks in the sixth round of this year's draft with Philadelphia and getting offensive lineman Winston Justice. 

Justice has started 31 of 47 career games with Philadelphia since being the club's second-round pick in the 2006 draft, the 39th choice overall.  In completing the deal, Indianapolis and the Eagles swapped positions in the sixth round of the upcoming draft.  Philadelphia now owns the Colts' second slot in that round, while Indianapolis now chooses in the 17th slot in the sixth round.  

Justice, 6-6, 320, opened one of six games this past season for Philadelphia.  He was a 16-game starter at right tackle in 2009 and a 13-game starter at right tackle in 2010.  In 2011, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy finished fourth in NFL rushing yards (1,309), and Philadelphia tallied 20 rushing touchdowns.  The line tied for fourth in the NFC in sacks allowed (32).

Justice played at Southern California, blocking for two Heisman Trophy-winning quarterbacks, Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart.
