Report: NFL has not offered bounty settlement to Saints LB Jonathan Vilma

NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Steve Wyche is contradicting an ESPN report that the NFL “has made a settlement offer.”

Wyche reported a source said the lack of an offer at this time does not mean a reduced suspension might not be offered in the future.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league had no comment on the report.

The NFL and Vilma are scheduled to appear before a U.S. District court judge on Friday to discuss settlement options.

Vilma was among four current and former Saints suspended by the NFL for the roles in the “bounty” programs that allegedly rewarded defensive players for injuring or knocking opponents out of games.
