After some schedule jostling between Steel Curtain Radio host Lance Williams and I, we discussed a few more tidbits of the Steelers' preseason events thus far, and a few things to look forward to in the upcoming Arians Bowl, Sunday at Heinz Field against the Indianapolis Colts.

The No. 1 thing that's important to Williams in preseason football is staying healthy. That didn't happen, unfortunately, to FB/TE David Johnson.

While it likely looks like "You'll See" Will Johnson being the Next Up guy, the Steelers brought in veteran TE Justin Peelle to compete perhaps as a way to add pure TE depth.

Does that mean neither Jamie McCoy nor David Paulsen would be adequate third TEs? Johnson looked like the best option as the 1FB as well as the 3TE. Can any of those three players fill that role?

Williams also sounds off about BountyGate and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's direction in the whole affair. That's always fun.

Give it a listen, it's linked here.
