The Falcons are playing the Panthers this weekend, which looks like it's not going to be a lot of fun for Atlanta fans, at least on paper. Regardless of the outcome of the game, perhaps you would like to steal a player or two from Carolina.
I understand that impulse. I've compiled a short list of Panthers that Falcons fans might be interested in, though it's by no means an exhaustive one. If you've got a better candidate, please be sure to share him in the comments.
He's older, sure, but he's a steady, quality presence on the left side of the Panthers' line and an excellent run blocker. He'd solve the Falcons' woes for the short-term, at least.
You could have Peter Konz, who is struggling badly, or you could have a three-time Pro Bowler who is just 28 years old. I don't really have to think twice about this one.
A glaringly obvious choice. Johnson already has six sacks this season, has piled up 49 for his career and is just 27 years. He's also signed to a long-term contract and would serve as the team's best defensive end by a long shot immediately.
The Falcons have quality defensive tackles. They don't have a potentially dominant rookie who eats running backs alive, though. I wouldn't mind adding the Star.
Have you ever complained about the Falcons not making tackles? Luke Kuechly makes all of the tackles.
Pick your Panther.
