The Eagles continue to make moves, as the team announced Wednesday the re-signing of defensive tackle
The Eagles move up from 17th to second in the sixth round, while also saving a reported approximate of $4.2 million on the salary cap. Justice, a second-round pick out of Southern Cal in 2006, played in 47 games (31 starts) in six seasons with the Eagles. In Indianapolis, he will be reunited with Colts general manager Ryan Grigson, who had long been with the Eagles.
Dixon, meanwhile, was a restricted free agent tendered at the second-round level. The 26-year-old defensive tackle was originally claimed off waivers prior to the 2009 season opener. The powerful, run-stuffing defensive tackle has played in 35 games (10 starts) for the Eagles, compiling 62 tackle, 3.0 sacks and one blocked field goal. He spent much of the 2011 season on injured reserve with a torn triceps.
