Could James Harrison pose a threat to the preservation of the Steelers' biggest secrets?

Ben Roethlisberger’s wife, Ashley, seems to think it's a possibility. Still, the Steelers quarterback assured that the idea of Harrison passing along information to the Patriots is nothing to be concerned with.

"My wife and I were talking about it last night," Ben Roethlisberger said Wednesday, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "She was asking me if he knew our no-huddle stuff. I said I don’t think he knows a lot of it. I’m sure he’s heard some of the same things for a lot of years now so maybe some of it. But that’s a long way off.

"The first time we played Cleveland, I think Sammie Coates had just been picked up by them. That obviously was a big concern of ours, him knowing our offense. That’s on James. If they want to ask him for every single piece of information he has then that’s what people do in this league. I’m not worried about it. We don’t play them this week. We don’t play them next week. We’ll see."

During his Wednesday news conference, Patriots coach Bill Belichick was quick to shut down any talk of Harrison's signing and the intention of using the veteran linebacker to gain intel on the Steelers as the teams prepare for a possible meeting in the AFC championship game.
