According to ESPN investigative reporter T.J. Quinn, that last part is a "non-starter" for the 77-year-old billionaire.

Because of Florida law, law enforcement officials expect that the video could be made public, but Quinn wrote that Kraft is expected to file a motion requesting that the videos remain sealed (which he did on Wednesday); if Kraft or others reach diversion agreements, the videos would be sealed anyway.

The Palm Beach State Attorney's Office confirmed Tuesday that it had offered to drop the misdemeanor charges for soliciting prostitution against Kraft and 24 other men, if they agreed to perform 100 hours community service, attend a class about the negative effects of prostitution, pay a $5,000 fine per count, and admit they would have been found guilty in court.

Robert Kraft has no intention of accepting the reported offer extended to him by Florida prosecutors in his solicitation case, according to multiple reports Tuesday night. According to TMZ, Kraft and his legal team filed a motion on Wednesday asking the court for a protective order that would prevent the police from releasing that video.

"We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity", a spokesperson for Kraft said on Feb 22. Sources said that the two sides were continuing to negotiate and that Kraft had not rejected the deal outright.

Police said Kraft was caught on camera inside Orchids of Asia allegedly receiving sex acts, then handing cash to women before leaving, according to WBZ-TV.

His arraignment is set for March 28. The 77-year-old pleaded not guilty to two separate misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution on February 28 and has maintained his innocence since first being charged. So far, no one in the case has been charged with human trafficking.

On Wednesday, Quinn tweeted that the National Football League has investigators in Jupiter and West Palm Beach, trying to find out if there is more to the Kraft story than is already known, like whether he'd visited Orchids of Asia on other occasions or other parlors.
