If you could steal one Carolina Panther for the Falcons, who would it be?

The Falcons could use some of Carolina’s beef up front.

The Atlanta Falcons are good. Yes, they looked like crap on Thursday night, but let me assure you that this roster does not lack for talent. Yet they could be more talented, if only they could steal players from other football teams.

Predictably, that’s what we’re talking about today. Who would you take from the Carolina Panthers, if you could steal one player away in the middle of the night and add him to this roster?

As old as he is (and currently injured), I might be tempted to take Greg Olsen at the moment. A healthy Olsen is a better tight end than anyone else on this Falcons roster, and given this offense’s struggles in the red zone, he’s a player I’d feel very good about adding.

Otherwise, I’d look at this defensive line again. It would be great to bring back Dontari Poe, add Kawann Short to the interior of the defnesive line, or Julius Peppers off the edge to add to the pass rush.

Who would you take?
