Free at last. Free at last. Apparently, former Dolphins offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains is free to leave.

A report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport Tuesday Morning says that Miami has given permission for Loggians to speak with other teams and apparently will allow him to join Jets new to reunite there with head coach Adam Gase:

As we wrote 72 hours ago, it had become obvious the Dolphins were blocking Loggains, their offensive coordinator in 2018, from leaving for the Jets, specifically, or any other team, while trying to determine who their new coach would be.

The Dolphins actually interviewed Loggains for their head coaching vacancy about two weeks ago. How serious they were about him becoming the their head coach is another matter, but they still publicly announced that they were talking to him formally about the vacancy.

And, next, we also knew that most assistants holding the coordinator title have two year deals or at least, deals where the team has a second-year option to keep the coordinator. That’s likely was in Loggains’ case, too. Further, doing some quick deduction: that had to be what the Dolphins were standing behind to keep him with them and away from Gase and the Jets, to this point.

This was further complicated by Miami having to wait to hire Patriots defensive assistant Brian Flores, as their new head coach. And with the Patriots having won the AFC Championship Game Sunday and headed to Super Bowl 53, the Dolphins must wait another two weeks before officially, making the move.

Still, it’s obvious that Flores must have told Dolphins GM Chris Grier and Owner Stephen Ross that he doesn’t intend to keep Loggains, and so, the Miami front office decided to let him pursue another opportunity.

Now, we wait to see, if Gase follows through and brings Loggains, who was with him in Chicago previous to coming to Miami, back aboard.
