New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis celebrates

The Jets began voluntary workouts and examined Revis, who is rehabbing a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He was examined by Dr. Russell Warren, who performed Revis' surgery last fall.

New Jets general manager John Itzik also wanted to meet with the star cornerback for the first time.

The Jets will evaluate Revis first before deciding the next course of action, according to ESPN.

Also, backup quarterback Tim Tebow arrived at the team's facility about 90 minutes early for Monday's scheduled 8 a.m. team meeting. He has also been mentioned in trade talks.

Wide receiver Santonio Holmes was a no-show. He is still recovering from foot surgery. He is not expected to join the team until later in the spring for workouts.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has added four coaches to the subcommittee of NFL Competition Committee, which is chaired by Hall of Fame Coach John Madden and makes suggestions to the committee before each annual NFL Owners Meeting.

The four new coaches are Leslie Frazier (Minnesota Vikings), Joe Philbin (Miami Dolphins), Ron Rivera (Carolina Panthers) and Mike Smith (Atlanta Falcons).

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, who served on the subcommittee since 2009, was recently named to the Competition Committee.
