ESPN first reported the offer late Sunday night and said the deal could also affect the suspensions of three other current and former Saints players. By Monday morning, however, the NFL's media site, NFL.com, cited a source that said the league "has made no settlement offer" to Vilma.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed that.

"Today's report about a settlement offer by the league to Jonathan Vilma is completely inaccurate," Aiello said in an emailed statement. "No such settlement offer has been made. We will continue to respect the court proceedings on this matter and have no further comment at this time."

The NFL, NFLPA and Vilma began negotiations on June 23 at a New Orleans-based settlement conference in the chambers of Magistrate Judge Daniel Knowles. The parties, however, did not reach an agreement, and Knowles requested that they not talk to anyone else about offers made during the conference.

ESPN's story on Sunday was the first to report specifics about ongoing settlement negotiations in what could be a breach of Knowles' confidentiality order. Vilma's filing on Monday requested that U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan investigate the possible breach.

We heard this yesterday, it's a repeat.
NFL denies settlement offers.
Vilma's attorney filed brief with Judge that Goodell breached confidentiality and blabbed his mouth across the NFLN about the case.....

It can't be a leak. The NFL has no more air in the tires! They are riding on rims.
