So much for all of the rumors that we’ve posted about all of the possibilities for Aaron Schobel. John McClain of the Houston Chronicle said that he spoke with Schobel yesterday and he plans on calling it a career.
Reports last week said that he and the Texans were trying to agree on money but Schobel felt that his heart wasn’t all that in to it. McClain added that “[Schobel] says he’s tired of dieting to weigh in the 240s when he’s playing and wants to eat and weigh 270.”
It’s a little surprising that he decided to call it quits given all of the interested team in acquiring his services but before the Bills finally released him, he had mentioned that he planned on retiring. There is still the chance that he gets the itch to play mid-season and signs on with a contender.
