The New York Jets have put trade talks with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on hold regarding Darrelle Revis, whose MRI confirmed Monday he's ahead of schedule in his rehab, sources have told ESPN. As the Jets began voluntary workouts in the morning, sources told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio the team, before continuing to explore a trade, would examine its star cornerback for the first time since an October surgery for a torn ACL in his left knee. Revis, examined at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York by Dr. Russell Warren, received positive but not unexpected news, a source told ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini. Revis was cleared by Warren to begin running without restrictions. After completing his early morning appointment, Revis was scheduled to report to the Jets' facility for the start of the offseason program. The team's doctors likely will further review the MRI results and present Revis with a detailed rehab schedule. He was also expected to meet for the first time with general manager John Idzik, who was hired the day after reports of trade talks first surfaced. Meanwhile, though his days with the Jets appear numbered, backup quarterback Tim Tebow showed up early Monday morning, as promised, for the offseason program. Receiver Santonio Holmes didn't report. He's still rehabbing his surgically repaired foot and taking classes at Ohio State, so he may not show up until late in the spring. But unlike Revis, Holmes doesn't have a workout bonus in his contract, which was renegotiated last month. He took a $3.5 million pay cut and will make a guaranteed $7.5 million this year.
