Denver's quarterback says there was no harm done.

Last week, some of Tom Brady's emails were leaked during the DeflateGate investigation, and remarks made about Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning were discovered. Some considered Brady's remarks a 'roast' of Manning (see what he emailed here).

But Manning said after practice Wednesday that he was not offended.

"Tom sent me an apology text that was unnecessary. The fact that his emails got revealed, that doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, so no harm, no foul. I didn’t think a lot of it," Manning said, according to a quote sheet released by the team's media department.

"Somebody said I was roasted. I’ve been roasted before. That is not a roast. I won’t be on that Comedy Central roast, but I’ve been at a couple of private dinners and banquets where I didn’t know it was going to turn into a roast of me, but it did. I can promise you that email was amateur night compared to some of the things people really said about me."

On the field, Manning and Brady are fierce rivals. But off the field, they have long been friends. It seems that Brady's emails won't change that.

Denver will host New England on Sunday Night Football on Nov. 29 this season.
