Roethlisberger 'fine' with James Harrison

By James Walker

According to former Pittsburgh Steeler and ESPN analyst Merril Hoge, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger spoke with teammate James Harrison this morning and is "fine" with the linebacker's recent comments. Here is the latest via ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Harrison bashed Roethlisberger's Super Bowl performance in an explosive interview with Men's Journal, saying he's not Peyton Manning but gets paid like it. Roethlisberger threw two costly interceptions in February's loss to the Green Bay Packers.

According to Hoge, Harrison told Roethlisberger in their conversation that his words were misconstrued and he didn't mean to be critical of the quarterback.
