Schobel to Pats “highly unlikely”

With Aaron Schobel officially released by the Bills Wednesday afternoon, naturally the Patriots, who often sign veteran players to fill holes are being thought of as a possible destination for him. Knowing Schobel’s family situation it’s unlikely to happen.

Echoing those sentiments was FOX Sports reporter Adam Caplan.

What most outside of Bills fans do not know is Schobel’s family situation. With three school age kids, Schobel and his wife would prefer to keep them in the same school year round instead of splitting the curriculum between their home and another NFL city.

Living an hour outside of Houston, the family dynamic is no longer a concern, if he plays for the Texans, which most have pegged as his number one choice. Truthfully it’s likely his only choice. Of course that’s if he decides to play.
