Peyton Manning carried a football covered in green Lycra as the Broncos opened OTAs on Wednesday.

The 2013 MVP did not want to divulge any details, though.

"That's Denver Broncos offensive business," he told reporters, per USA Today.

Manning was seen carrying the ball during the 90-minute practice. Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas also carried a green football.

When pressed by the media about it, Manning went grade school.

"Like I said, that's official Denver Broncos offensive business, right? It's kind of an A and B conversation and you can C your way out of it," Manning said.

Well, I'm rubber and you're glue ... oh, forget it.

Unfortunately for the team captain, coach John Fox ratted him out, telling reporters the green footballs represented the team's fumbling issues last season.
