Packers General Manager Brian Gutekunst reiterated Wednesday that he plans to be very aggressive when the free agent signing period begins next month. Right now the Packers have just over $19 million in cap space, that ranks 26th. It's not bad, but it may prohibit them from being very aggressive. So the first place to look (for cap space) is high-priced veterans. 3 WR's are going to have cap hits above $10 million. That makes Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb targets.
When the NFL Scouting Combine concludes here, the next big date on the NFL calendar will be March 12. At 3 o'clock on the day teams can begin talking to potential veteran free agents. Packers GM Brian Gutekunst reiterated in Indy on Wednesday that he plans on doing a lot of talking. “We'd like to be aggressive and be in every conversation,” Gutekunst said.
The 2017 Atlanta Falcons have been trying all year to look, feel and play like the 2016 Atlanta Falcons. And in a related search, running back Devonta Freeman has been trying to look, feel and play like the 2016 Devonta Freeman. He did one better Monday night, as Freeman also sounded like the 2016 version of himself throughout the Falcons' 24-21 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. When he's at his best, Freeman creates his own genre of football music at the end of his runs.
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".
