The Falcons are facing the Rams for the first time this season, which gives us an opportunity to dust off one of my favorite ongoing series. That series, of course, involves thievery.
If you were able to drop into Los Angeles tomorrow, extract one Rams player, and add him to this Falcons roster before these two teams play, who would you take?
The answer for me is glaringly obvious, as I suspect it will be for many of you. This improving Falcons defense would become something otherworldly with Aaron Donald joining a defensive tackle rotation that already includes Grady Jarrett and Dontari Poe. Donald is one of the league’s true elite defenders, very obviously the best overall defensive tackle in football, and an elite addition for a Falcons team in need of one. This would singlehandedly tip the scales to the Falcons in this upcoming game, I think.
Who would you choose, if you could?
