No deadline for Schobel

Posted by Chris Brown on March 30, 2010 – 2:18 pm

Bills head coach Chan Gailey was asked if there was a drop dead date for Aaron Schobel to make a call on his future plans and decide whether or not he’s playing in 2010. As Gailey has maintained all along, there are no deadlines on that subject.

“I don’t think so,” said Gailey. “I think you would like to know, but I don’t think now is any time to put a deadline on it, or do we need to do that in the future. He realizes what has to be done to play and play in a new system. He’s enough of a pro and a vet to understand that. I think he’ll get to the point where he realizes that he needs to get in here and a get a little bit of this and if he doesn’t, he doesn’t. He’s smart enough to understand all of that I believe.”

While the Bills are in no way going to prod Schobel to make a decision about his playing future, Schobel is faced with learning a new defensive scheme with much different responsibilities for him at an outside linebacker position. How much time he feels he’ll need and how much time the Bills staff thinks he’ll need to have it down could be two different things.

For now however, the situation remains status quo.
