Schobel says he won't be back

   It appears that Aaron Schobel has played his last game as a Buffalo Bill.

   While he hasn't made his retirement official, he made it clear that he isn't prepared to play right now.

   "At this point I don't think I'm going to play," Schobel told The Buffalo News on Thursday. "I'm not ready to say I'm retiring but it's in the Bills' hands."

   He said that he does not plan to attend any of the remaining organized team activities or the mandatory minicamp that runs from June 23 to 25 or training camp. However, Schobel said that he would consider a return at some point during the season if the Bills needed him to come back.

   "But if they want to move on, I'm fine with that."

   Schobel has hinted at retiring since the end of the 2008 season, citing a desire to spend more time with his family. He recently sold his house in Western New York.

   He has the second most sacks in team history behind Bruce Smith.
