Eagles give RT Justice four-year extension after he becomes starter

PHILADELPHIA -- Right tackle Winston Justice has signed a four-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The team announced the deal Tuesday, but it didn't reveal financial terms. Justice could have become an unrestricted free agent after this season.

A second-round draft pick in 2006, Justice has started every game this season after starting only one in his first three years in the NFL. He replaced Shawn Andrews, who didn't take a snap and was placed on injured reserve with a season-ending back injury.

Jon Runyan had started every game at right tackle for the Eagles since 2000, but he wasn't resigned after last season and remains a free agent.
