According to SI's Peter King, the Falcons are trying to trade up from No. 30 in the first round of the draft.

Thomas Dimitroff is annually one of the most aggressive general managers on draft day, especially when there's a player he wants -- such as Julio Jones in 2011. This year, the Falcons have holes at cornerback and pass rusher. They'd have to really reach to get into the Dee Milliner range, but Florida State's Xavier Rhodes or Washington's Desmond Trufant could be realistic. A darkhorse name to watch is Notre Dame TE Tyler Eifert as the Falcons look toward the post-Tony Gonzalez era. Note that Dimitroff has 11 total picks to work with.

Presumptive No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett will not attend the draft in person.

Garrett is opting for a party at his church. Among the players who will be in Philadelphia are quarterbacks Mitch Trubisky, Deshaun Watson and DeShone Kizer. A complete list of players attending can be found at the link below.

Steelers chairman Dan Rooney has passed away at the age of 84.

A giant of the game, Dan was the son of Steelers founder Art Rooney. He had led the team since 1988, and been associated in some capacity since 1955. A believer in stability, the Steelers had just three coaches during Rooney's nearly 30-year tenure. A football man all his life, Rooney briefly stepped away from 2009-12, when he served as the 30th United States Ambassador to Ireland. The "Rooney Rule," which mandates teams interview minority candidates for coaching and general manager vacancies, was Rooney's doing. The team is now fully in the hands of Rooney's son, Art Rooney II.

Titans released CB Jason McCourty.

The move clears $7 million in cap space and leaves behind no dead money. The No. 203 overall pick of the 2009 draft, McCourty was the Titans' longest-tenured player. Per USA Today's Tom Pelissero, the sides couldn't agree on a restructured contract. McCourty was mentioned as a candidate for release as far back as January. Limited to four games by injury in 2015, McCourty's play took a dive last season. He turns 30 in August. Dots will be connected between McCourty and his brother Devin in New England, but the Pats aren't in the habit of handing out feel-good contracts.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Adrian Peterson isn't expected sign with a team before the draft.

That's "barring a dramatic shift." Already content to wait Peterson out, teams will wait on a potential flier until after the draft, where they might select a young runner. Peterson has visited the Patriots, Seahawks and Saints, but hasn't seemed particularly close to a deal with anybody.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Marshawn Lynch's "short-term deal" with the Raiders will include "heavy incentives."

That's far from s surprise. No matter how badly the Raiders want Lynch, they understand he's a 31-year-old back (this month) who spent 2016 out of the league. Lynch also struggled through injury and bouts of ineffectiveness in 2015. His addition, while a big name, would be far from a slam dunk.

Colts signed DT Johnathan Hankins, formerly of the Giants, to a three-year, $30 million contract.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal includes $14.5 million guaranteed. It's a big get for the Colts' talent-bereft defense, and as big of a loss for the G-Men. Hankins was one of the anchors of New York's top-five run defense last season. The No. 49 overall pick of the 2013 draft, Hankins just turned 25. He's been a bit inconsistent to this point in his career, but put a lot of great football on tape. GM Chris Ballard is off to a solid start in Indy.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Marshawn Lynch is expected to be traded to the Raiders.

RapSheet adds the trade is contingent on Lynch reworking his deal, but it all seems like a formality at this point. If it all works out, Lynch should be one of the more interesting fantasy discussion this summer. Considering Latavius Murray managed top-13 performances each of the last two seasons, Lynch's upside in a quality offense behind a great line is undeniable. That said, he will be 31 this month, did not play football last season, and sat out most of 2015 because of injury. The upside alone has to put him in the RB2 tier, but there is a good chance Lynch is over-drafted.

ESPN's Roman Modrowski reports free agent Jay Cutler is still contemplating retirement.

WGN Radio reported at the Annual League Meeting late last month that there was a "strong belief" Cutler wouldn't play football in 2017, and he's yet to receive any known free agent interest. As Modrowski notes, Cutler is married to successful TV personality Kristin Cavillari and has no financial worries. The Jets at one point were rumored to have interest, but 34-year-old Cutler likely has no interest in joining a rebuilding team.

The New York Post reports the Giants have a four-year, $28 million offer on the table for free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

Hankins has continued to shop his wares in hopes of landing something more lucrative, but he's yet to find any serious takers. The Giants' offer is identical to the deal signed by Nick Fairley in New Orleans. Fairley was a better player than Hankins last year, but Hankins is younger with more long-term upside. Ultimately, Hankins' likeliest landing spot remains New York.

The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts are unlikely to sign free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

Hankins left his visit Tuesday without a contract. The Colts have a huge need at nose tackle, but aren't willing to meet Hankins' asking price. With Miami also reportedly out on Hankins, re-signing with the Giants is looking like his most likely landing spot.

The Los Angeles Times' Gary Klein reports the Rams will decline 2014 first-rounder Greg Robinson's fifth-year team option for 2018.

Duh. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 draft, Robinson has been a colossal bust. He's arguably been the worst left tackle in the sport since entering the league and is now being flipped to right tackle by the Sean McVay coaching staff. We doubt he proves much better there. The Rams haven't been able to find a capable left tackle since Hall of Famer Orlando Pace moved on, and they smartly plugged the hole with veteran Andrew Whitworth as a priority free agent.
