Who does this guy think he is? Brett Favre?

Buffalo Bills pass-rusher Aaron Schobel might not be thinking retirement anymore.

The two-time Pro Bowler skipped every summer workout and previously suggested he was done with football. But Schobel told Buffalo's ABC affiliate he may return to the Bills after all.

"I would say I'm leaning more towards [playing] than I was a month ago," Schobel told WKBW sports director Jeff Russo 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."

The report adds Schobel hasn't spoken to the Bills over the past month but would like to make a decision within the next 10 days.

Veterans are supposed to report for Bills training camp on Wednesday. The first practice will be Thursday.

"I don't know how much time they'd give me," Schobel said. "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."

Schobel is at a disadvantage. He has played 4-3 defensive end since he entered the NFL as a second-round pick in 2001, but the Bills spent the summer installing a 3-4 defense under new head coach Chan Gailey and new defensive coordinator George Edwards.
