Jets owner Woody Johnson has decided to keep Brandon Marshall on the team’s official roster.

Sources told NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo that Johnson is also in talks with the Chiefs about keeping receiver Demaryius Thomas and safety Eric Berry off the roster, and they’ve also been in discussions about keeping cornerback Darius Slay off of the team.

Slay and Berry are both in the final year of their rookie contracts, and both could be traded as early as Thursday’s draft.

The Jets are reportedly interested in acquiring a veteran cornerback, but it’s unclear if they would consider bringing in a veteran pass-rusher.

Johnson is reportedly close to keeping Marshall on his roster after Marshall’s decision to retire last month.

Marshall’s contract with the Jets expires after the 2016 season.

He had been the team´s starting cornerback the past two seasons and has made more than $3 million in guaranteed money in the last two years.
