This half of the blaugh wanted Schobel, very badly. Its not going to happen. The Patriots need a pass rusher desperately, even more now with the loss of Ty Warren. Instead of signing a one year deal with a team Schobel has decieded to take his talents to his sofa where he will be watching games instead of playing in them.
The Patriots did however got back Derrick Burgess, who was a no show at camp until friday. Burgess is much needed becuase such thin depth at DE. At the end of last season Burgess really started to show signs of being the pass rusher he was with the Eagles at the end of last season.
The return of Burgess does not solve the pass rush problem. The other DEs are Mike Wright, Gerald Warren and a bunch of rooks. I think to be able to compete the Pats need to sign a player to get after the passer, it just won't be Schobel...
