Veteran Bills defensive end Aaron Schobel does not know if he will suit up next season. He said Tuesday he is not prepared to say he will retire. He made the comment on a day in which the Bills were due to pay him a two-million dollar roster bonus. However, because he had failed a team physical due to an elbow injury, Schobel has to pass another exam in order to collect the bonus. The 32-year-old Schobel has played nine seasons with Buffalo. He has been in two Pro Bowls.
