As of now, Tyrod Taylor is not entering training camp with a fat new deal. But he is entering as the unquestioned starter heading into next season.

The QB was back at his high school stomping grounds in Hampton, Virginia, holding a youth clinic on Saturday. Despite not having a new contract Taylor says he wants to be the long-term answer at the position in Buffalo.

Heading into the fall, the mentality is still the same for the signal caller.

"In previous years, I've been the one going into compete and continue to prove that I belong," he said. "That's going to still be the case. You have to keep proving yourself. But I'm excited to get back and work out with the guys. I can't wait to get back."

Taylor's agent, Adisa Bakari has been outspoken in recent weeks, telling Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News that Taylor provided the "best quarterback play" the team has had since Jim Kelly.

The 26-year-old told the Daily Press' David Teel that he's "not into the contract stuff" and "will let his agent handle" the new deal.

Taylor went 8-6 in his first year as a starter in the NFL, but the Bills missed the playoffs for a 16th straight year.  He's entering the final year of his contract in Buffalo.
