    Bills decide to divorce Aaron Schobel

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on August 2, 2010 11:03 AM ET
    In-limbo Bills defender Aaron Schobel has been compared to Brett Favre in recent days for his wishy-washy retirement plans. Bills G.M. Buddy Nix has now decided to play the Ted Thompson role in this minidrama.

    "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," Nix said in a statement released by the team.

    "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."

    For once, it really doesn't seem to be about the money. Schobel was set to transition to outside linebacker and was due $8 million in base salary and a roster bonus from the Bills. It's hard to imagine another team taking on that contract.

    We think this is a wise move by Buffalo -- why pay huge bucks for one year to a guy at a new position when he doesn't want to be there?

    The Bills could explore trade possibilities now, assuming Schobel does want to play again. It seems more likely that the team will eventually release him.

    That's not possible, the only person who is forceful and hard headed like that in a contract situation with a special player for a team is AJ. Must be AJ propaganda to show he's not so bad after all. :lol:

    yep, thats the only position I'm a bit worried about. WEre covered everywhere else. Come on mcneil. Do the right thing and come back and I would guess you'll get a big paycheck sooner or later. Probably sooner cause you showed good faith in being part of the team.
