Peyton Manning may be wearing a new uniform this season but the Denver Broncos quarterback showed he still has his old sense of humor.

Surrounded by a group of reporters after working out, Manning was asked if it "felt weird to look up at a taller quarterback?" Namely Brock Osweiler— a 6-foot-7 player vying for one of the Broncos' backup quarterback spots.

Manning looked at the much shorter reporter and joked, "Happens to you all your life," as the media gang broke into laughter.

Manning looked at the startled scribe and said, "You set yourself up for that," before patting him on the head like a little kid.

It was kind of a silly question.  Manning stands 6-foot-5 himself.

It's good to see Manning smiling again— after being sidelined for a year-and-a-half— even if it comes from a little jab at the expense of someone else.

You can only wonder what kind of ribbing younger brother Eli probably went through as a kid.
