Aaron Schobel was due a $2 million roster bonus due this week, which seemed like a natural deadline for the Bills to decide what to do with the possibly retiring defensive end.
It turns out, though, the money is fully guaranteed. There is no real decision for the Bills to make presently, which gives Schobel more time to decide what he wants to do.
Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News points out the team could delay the bonus or try to get it back in the future should Schobel retire.
Either way, the team’s position seems to be clear. They would love Schobel to return, despite his $6 million base salary.
