That doesn't mean Schobel's made up his mind yet. Speaking by phone from his home in Texas on Wednesday, Schobel confirmed to The Associated Press that he intends to reach a decision by the middle of August.
He says he began having a change of heart over the past month as the NFL season drew closer. Schobel is a nine-year veteran, whose 78 career sacks rank second on the team behind Hall of Famer Bruce Smith.
Schobel says he's not spoken with the Bills, who have left the door open for his return even as they prepare to open training camp in suburban Rochester on Thursday.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com currently list the Bills as 100/1 long shots to win the 2011 Super Bowl. They’re also 50/1 long shots to win the AFC, are +2000 on the moneyline to win the AFC East Division and have an over/under win total of just 5.5 this season.
