Aaron Schobel may want to talk to other teams as a free agent, but the Bills won’t let him.
“He will remain on our Reserve/Did Not Report list until he makes a
decision about what he wants to do, whether it’s retire or if he might
want to play somewhere else,” said Nix.
Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com says it’s clear the team won’t release Schobel and that the only options for the defensive end is retirement or a trade.
Schobel insists he’s not sure if he wants to play again, and will take the next two weeks to decide. It can’t help matters that he would have to potentially wait out a sticky trade process. It’s unlikely any team will want to take on his present contract.
Still Schobel says he’s relieved the Bills made up his mind for him.
“I kept changing my mind. This makes it easier,” he said.
