It is a well known fact that the Buffalo Bills and Carolina Panthers are two of the most most linked teams, not only in the NFL, but in all of sports. 

The Bills have 13 players and coaches in the organization that were previously with Carolina. The Panthers have five former Bills within their franchise. 

If given the ability to dip back into the Panthers pool of players, with no restrictions, which Carolina star would improve Buffalo the most? 

Fans took to Twitter for Monday's late night discussion to give their two-cents. 

Josh Allen gets an elite weapon 

The most recurring choice that fans want to steal from Carolina is RB Christian McCaffrey. 

At just 23 years old, McCaffrey has become one of the most dangerous offensive players in the NFL. While the former top-10 pick passed 1,000 rushing yards and 7 rushing touchdowns in 2018, he also caught 107 passes for 867 yards and 6 touchdowns. 

In two seasons, the Stanford-product has an astounding 187 receptions. 

His 867 receiving yards was more than the likes of Alshon Jeffery and Julian Edelman. It makes since the fans want to give Josh Allen that kind of versatile weapon in the offense. 

Josh Allen gets replaced

A lot of fans decided to build around Allen through this excercise. Others decided to replace him with a very similar style of QB.  

Cam Newton is seven years older than Allen, but he is a proven franchise QB while the jury is still out on Buffalo's young signal-caller. 

After Newton became a repeated choice, we took to the polls to find out what percentage of Buffalo's fanbase would take the former MVP over their own mobile QB.
