Despite a report last night from ESPN that the NFL has made an offer to New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, according to NFL.com an offer hasn’t been made to Vilma.

“The NFL “has made no settlement offer” to New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma regarding his season-long suspension for his role in a “bounty” program despite reports to the contrary, a source close to the situation told NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Steve Wyche on Monday morning,” reported NFL.com.

This situation is getting very interesting.  We have to wonder if Vilma will end deciding to not take accept a settlement offer to try to clear his name.
