No apologies necessary. I'm aware of this. You can see details below if you want.

I think mentioning another offer may be more information than is needed. I may just tell them I've reconsidered and decided it's not going to work.

FYI:

There was a relocation package on the table the entire time. Through the process they decided to put me in for a different job than I was approached with, and then I "qualified" for one level down from that. This meant the pay was less as well as no relocation package. I was going to do it anyway because there's a sign on bonus that would cover it but I'd have to live there myself until my first check and then bring the family.
