Skuta. And Grant could still be retained for cheap.
This, but Fleming could still play ILB. He is light for a 3-4 OLB, and ND doesn't play a 3-4, IIRC. Bowman was a 4-3 OLB who we converted to 3-4 ILB, and I would say that worked out pretty well. He probably won't ever be as good as Willis, but he could be the 2nd best ILB in football for a while.
Not saying Fliming is all of that, just that the switch is possible, and low risk. He was supposed to make his biggest impact on ST last year, before he broke.
