Report: Texans Still Courting Retired DE Aaron Schobel

Mac Engel of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram is reporting that former Buffalo Bills DE Aaron Schobel is interested in coming out of a brief retirement to play for the Houston Texans.

Former TCU defensive end and the recently “retired” Aaron Schobel of the Buffalo Bills has not ruled out playing this season for the Houston Texans.

[TCU people and friends of Schobel have] said the Texans have been rather persistent in their pursuit, and he has told them he would let them know on Monday if he will play again.

Schobel had recently announced his retirement from the NFL after considering a number of potential suitors.

Battle Red Blog has already heard the news and would love for Schobel to come to Houston.

This seems like a no brainer move to me if Schobel will sign. Bob McNair has already shown a willingness to spend some cash in the uncapped year when he resigned Andre Johnson to an extension two years into a five year contract. If worst case scenario is that he performs at a lesser level than who you already have than what did you really lose?

More on this as it becomes available. It would be nice to hear the same information repeated by more reliable source.
