Justice has been served! Sorry, I couldn’t resist. The Eagles did right by Winston Justice today and awarded him a four-year contract extension.
Justice has been perhaps the biggest surprise of the 2009 season. Many, myself included, assumed he’d be lucky to make the final roster entering training camp. Once Shawn Andrews‘ back flared up, the job became Justice’s to lose. Through ten games, he’s been the Birds most consistent offensive lineman.
The deal is reported to be worth $18.5 million with $6 million guaranteed. I say good for Winston. His story is a nice one.
