Who would you steal from the Vikings, if you could take one player?

We know who we’d take.

The Atlanta Falcons are, as we’ve noted multiple times in the past, one of the NFL’s most talented squads. That said, if you have a chance to steal from a 9-2 team with a damn good defense like the Vikings, you do it.

What if you could only take one player, though? Who would that be?

For me, the answer is Everson Griffen. He has been one of the league’s most dominant pass rushers this season, piling up 12 sacks, and he is big enough and powerful enough to be an asset against the run. He has also forced three fumbles, and is just generally having the kind of season that would help lift this Falcons defense from sneaky good to just plain good.

Plus, he would no longer be on the Vikings, which seems like it might come in handy this weekend.

Who would be your choice?
