Who would you take from the Philadelphia Eagles, if you could take one player?

The Falcons are so talented, but they could still benefit from Philadelphia additions.

Okay, it’s time for an annual tradition unlike any other: Contemplating which star player from the other team this week you would like to steal.

This week, there are plenty of worthy candidates. The Philadelphia Eagles have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL, with worthwhile players to target on both sides of the ball. You could pick a gifted running back or two, an established terrific tight end or a promising rookie one, or some of the better defensive linemen in football. The choice is yours.

Me? I’m going Fletcher Cox, just as I did the last time these two teams met. He’s an elite defensive lineman who would be a juggernaut on this front next to Grady Jarrett, Takkarist McKinley and Vic Beasley. The addition of Cox would turn a good line with considerable upside into one of the NFL’s very best in short order, and now I really want this to happen even though it can’t.

Who would be your choice?
