With spring fast approaching things have remained unchanged with respect to Aaron Schobel and whether he’ll be returning in 2010 or retiring.
“I don’t think there’s anything that’s really changed on that front,” said head coach Chan Gailey. “Obviously we would like to have Aaron back and hope that works out. But we understand his dilemma as well. There’s no timetable on this for either party right now.”
Initially Schobel indicated he would take two months to make a decision, but that timetable came and went a couple of weeks ago. The Bills appear at this point to be willing to give him as much time as he needs.
Schobel is still wrestling with being away from his young family as he intends to keep them in Texas permanently instead of splitting the year between Buffalo and the Lone Star state.
With all three of his kids to be school age this fall, disrupting their schooling midterm again is no longer an option. At the same time Schobel doesn’t want to be away from his family for long stretches of time during the season.
Schobel has also stated that he needs to be certain that he has the passion to play all out again in 2010, as he refuses to do anything less as a player in the NFL.
