Ben Roethlisberger & James Harrison Swap Jerseys for Steelers Scrimmage

By Anthony Blake

Normally it’s only offensive players who have to be afraid of James Harrison, but when the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker swaps jerseys with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, defenders have to be petrified.

That’s what transpired during the team’s latest scrimmage, with Big Ben sporting No. 92 while Harrison looked the part of the QB wearing No. 7.

Given the NFL‘s numbering policies, where certain positions can only wear certain digits, this looks all the funnier with a QB wearing a 92 and a bulky linebacker in the No. 7.

But yeah, probably not humorous if you were tasked with tackling Harrison in the pocket.
