"Tyrod's our starter. Tyrod's the guy we're going into the season with," Whaley said, via the Buffalo News. "... He's not the type who's insecure like (about his status)."
Much of this offseason in Buffalo has been spent haggling over Taylor's future with the franchise. The quarterback's agent has been vocal about getting his client a new long-term deal that would compensate Taylor at the level of a starting quarterback. Taylor is set to make $1 million this season.
For his part, Taylor said he's not focused on the contract situation.
"The business side handles itself, whether it gets done or not," he said, via WGR 550, on Tuesday. "Like I said it handles itself. I am just here to work and get better as a player."
