Bills Announce They're Moving On Without Schobel

The Buffalo Bills have announced that they are moving on without Aaron Schobel. GM Buddy Nix made the following statement:

"Aaron has been contemplating retirement for the past seven months, but we are at the point where we are moving forward and have informed his agent of our plans. Aaron has been a very good player for the Bills and we wish him and his family the best, but there comes a point where we have to move forward and that point is today. We are focusing on the team’s best interests."

Schobel has already spoken with WKBW regarding the decision, and offered the following in reply to Buffalo's decision:

"I heard it, I'm fine with it. I'm a little bit relieved and I definitely understand where they're coming from. They're trying to move on and rebuild and do what they need to do to give themselves the best chance, and they don't want some guy just interrupting it. So I understand, and I appreciate everything Buffalo did for me."

Schobel also indicated to WKBW that his playing career is likely over. The Bills placed Schobel on the Reserve/Did Not Report list when camp opened last Thursday.
