Winston Justice to join the Eagles

Former Lehigh University right tackle Winston Justice replaced Shawn Andrews, who endured an aching back and could not continue playing. The former second-round draft pick just signed a four-year contract extension with the team. Justice is worth between $18 and $20 million with an additional $6 million signing bonus. Justice, who is in the final year of his rookie contract, admitted that he did not imagine such a deal coming when he checked into his dorm room at Lehigh University.

Philadelphia Flyers facing thin offense

With an already thin offense, Danny Briere is now suspended for two games because of the outburst he had during the game against the Colorado Avalanches. The NHL player hit Colorado’s Scott Hannan after he scored a goal delivering the teams 5-4 win. Briere has led the Flyers with 10 goals this season and is a player who is essential to the Philadelphia Flyers. The team is also suffering from the loss of injured forwards Simon Gagne, Darroll Powe, Blair Betts and Aaron Asham. Briere not only forfeited himself to the next two games, but he will also endure the loss of $67,357.52 in salary, which will go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Tiger Woods released from hospital

Tiger Woods was recently released from the hospital after he was in a car accident near his Florida home. The accident occurred at 2:25 a.m. when Woods lost control of his SUV and hit a fire hydrant and then a tree in his neighbor’s yard. Although he was alone in the car during the time of the crash, Woods’ wife heard the accident and released him from the vehicle using a gold club. According to Woods’ publicist, Glenn Greenspan, he did not endure any major injuries and is in good condition. The cause of the crash is still listed as unknown, however investigators stated that alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
