• Darrelle Revis was back with his Jets teammates as rumors continue to swirl that he could be headed elsewhere soon. The star cornerback and Aliquippa native reported Monday for the first day of the team's voluntary offseason conditioning program, a few hours after having an MRI exam. The results, according to several published reports, were positive. ESPN reported Revis was cleared by doctors to begin running without restrictions. Revis, who has been rehabilitating his surgically repaired left knee in Arizona, didn't speak with reporters who were waiting outside the entrance to the Jets' training complex.
• The Giants started voluntary offseason workouts without restricted free agent wide receiver Victor Cruz. A source close the team said Cruz, who has led the Giants' in receiving the past two seasons, wasn't at the well-attended workout at the club's headquarters. The Giants recently placed a first-round tender on Cruz.
• The Browns signed free agent kicker Shayne Graham, a potential replacement for Phil Dawson. A 12-year NFL veteran, Graham has made 85.4 percent of his kicks, fifth in league history.
• The Eagles released quarterback Trent Edwards, who spent last season as the No. 3 and backup QB after sitting out the 2011 season. He was 15-18 as a starter in Buffalo and 0-1 with Jacksonville.
• The Chiefs signed veteran Akeem Jordan to provide depth and push for playing time alongside middle linebacker Derrick Johnson. Jordan appeared in 82 games with 34 starts in six seasons for the Eagles.
• The Bengals re-signed backup running back Bernard Scott, who missed most of last season because of injuries.
