My quick answer is yes of course I do. The man has been a workhorse and a franchise player who never turned his back on the Bills even at the worst of times, basically his entire career. He's never been in the spotlight for the wrong reasons, and despite a few injuries, has continued to produce season after season. In my opinion, he's been the best defensive end the Bills have seen since Bruce Smith and I'm certain I'm not the only one who thinks that.
However, considering he would need to make a positional switch after a great career at DE, would need to do so in a new system, has missed all team activities to this point and so has not yet begun the difficult task of learning his new position, does it really make sense to have him come back and give him the reps at a position other team members have been working at for months now?
Open question, do you want to see Schobel back on the field at training camp? If no, why not? If yes, at what point does it no longer make sense to keep him on the roster?
To start off, I want to see him at training camp because I think he'd have enough time to learn OLB well enough to be a threat on the field and would be able to adjust throughout preseason. That said, he'd only have 2 weeks before the first preseason game and I think you have to move along if he does not show up for that first preseason game.
Take it away.
