Schobel On Possible Return: "I'm Thinking About It"

Back in early June, Buffalo Bills defensive end Aaron Schobel told The Buffalo News "I don't think I'm going to play" (in 2010). A little over a month later, on the eve of his Bills teammates reporting to St. John Fisher College for training camp, Schobel has changed his stance. Slightly.

"I would say I'm leaning more towards doing it than I was a month ago," Schobel told WKBW's Jeff Russo. "At this point I'm thinking about it. At that point I didn't want to even consider it."

Schobel also told WKBW that he has been following a diet and working out as he continues to ponder his playing future. He is still undecided as to whether or not he'll return, but Russo reports that Schobel plans to make a final decision within the next 10 days.

"I don't want it to be January and say I wish I would have tried," Schobel told Russo.

Schobel still sounds unsure how much leeway the team will give him in terms of the amount of time he'll require to make his decision. The chances that he'll be in Rochester tomorrow are very, very small. Buffalo's stance has been steadfast all along, as GM Buddy Nix and head coach Chan Gailey have repeated that they'd like him to play, but would understand if he didn't.
