Peyton Manning pulls prank on receiver at Duke

Posted: Updated:
DURHAM, N.C. -

Peyton Manning is working out at Duke University this week, and the star quarterback of the Denver Broncos didn't leave his devilish sense of humor behind.

Manning is working with several other Broncos, including receiver Wes Welker and Eric Decker, and pulled a prank on Decker.

He sent Decker an invoice that looked like an official bill from Duke. The invoice, for $3,217.50, bills Decker $2,500 for "On-field instruction from Duke Football Coaching Staff" at $500 per session.

The bill also charges Decker $200 for taping and treatment from the Duke staff.

On Twitter, Decker wrote, "Nice little practical joke Peyton drew up … making me think I have to pay for workouts in Duke [this] week."

Decker included a copy of the "bill."

Manning worked out again Thursday morning at Duke with his brother,  Eli. Peyton Manning played at the University of Tennessee, when current Duke coach David Cutcliffe was the Volunteers' offensive coordinator.

Eli Manning played at Mississippi, when Cutcliffe was the head coach there.
