Adam Gase has a week off, and a window to talk to teams if he wants to.
And like last year, he’ll have options.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Falcons and 49ers have already asked for permission to talk to Gase.
A year ago, the Browns asked for permission to interview the Broncos offensive coordinator, but he pulled a Rex Grossman and said no thanks.
With several teams looking at him and a diminished field of hot coordinator prospects, this could be his best chance to land a head coaching job.
And unlike the Browns job, both the 49ers and Falcons come with established front offices and quarterbacks who you might be able to go to the playoffs with.
