AJ McCarron’s time with the Cincinnati Bengals is most likely about to end. The 27-year-old quarterback recently won his grievance with the team, which means he’s set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason and could potentially get a big payday to start for another team. McCarron didn’t get a ton of opportunities to play in his four years in Cincy because of Andy Dalton. But as he tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter, McCarron considers that experience backing up Dalton in a more positive light.
Legendary kicker Adam Vinatieri wanted to return for a 23rd NFL season. And apparently, so do the Indianapolis Colts. According to Bob Kravitz of WHTR, the 45-year-old is set to sign a one-year deal to remain with the Colts next season. Vinatieri has understandably shown signs of slowing down now that he’s in his mid-40s. He was 29-of-34 on field goals last year, which is actually his lowest field goal conversion rate in 2012.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery made good on his remarkable guarantee to win the Super Bowl this season. Apparently, he did so while playing all season with an injured shoulder, which he finally underwent surgery to repair on Wednesday morning. Jeffery missed 11 games in his last two seasons with the Chicago Bears due to an assortment of injuries. But despite the injury to his shoulder, he still had a strong debut campaign for the Eagles after coming over in the offseason.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
