BOUNTYFARCE:

League again denies that it made Vilma an offer | ProFootballTalk
As we’ve explained, there’s a way to make an offer without making an offer. If the NFL officially had offered to cut Vilma’s suspension from 16 games to eight, the NFL would have inevitably been squeezed off that number if/when further discussions occurred. Instead, the NFL apparently made a non-offer offer, making it clear to Vilma’s lawyer that, if Vilma would accept a reduction from 16 games to eight games, the NFL would do it.
