Aaron Schobel contemplates future with Bills

July 27, 2010 Updated Jul 27, 2010 at 6:15 PM EDT

Buffalo (WKBW.com) Bills players are scheduled to report to training camp on Wednesday. Simply put, Aaron Schobel won't be there. He likely won't be there when practice opens on Thursday, but the 9-year veteran told Eyewitness Sports on Tuesday that he hasn't ruled out playing for the Bills in 2010.



Reached at his home in Texas, Schobel told Eyewitness Sports Director Jeff Russo on Tuesday that he's not made a decision on his future, but that at this point he's at least considering coming back next season. That's a change of stance from when Schobel stopped just short of saying he was retiring about a month ago, but the veteran says he's on a diet, working out, and is leaving the door open for a possible return.



"I would say I'm leaning more towards doing it (playing) then I was a month ago", Schobel said on Tuesday. "At this point I'm thinking about it. At that point (a month ago) I didn't want to even consider it. I wanted to enjoy my life like I was done with football. Lately both me and my wife have decided we have to do something."



So what's changed? It was just over a month ago that Schobel told BuffaloBills.com that he didn't think he was going to play in 2010.
"I don't know why.. I just started thinking I need to do something", said Schobel. "I don't want it to be January and say I wish I would have tried."



Schobel says he has not spoken with the Bills over the last month, but that his agent has. He hopes to make a decision on his future over the next 10 days.



"I don't know how much time they'd give me. If I decide I want to come back, and they'd be willing to take me back, we will figure out what we need to do from there."
