It looks like this veteran is getting Thanksgiving Day off like the rest of us. Well, almost. Dwight Freeney may be on the roster of one of the six teams going to battle after he was claimed off waivers by the Lions yesterday, but he won't be feasting on quarterbacks of the NFC North just yet. The former Pro Bowl defensive end will not suit up during his first game for Detroit. Considering the man was signed around the same time people were prepping for the big meal today, this is no surprise.
The deed is officially done. Darelle Revis is a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. The move was a complete surprise to many people as we thought we've seen the last of the former mayor of the tropical resort all wideouts hated, Revis Island. If you think about it shocking us, just think about the man who had to give up his roster spot to make room for the 10-year veteran. The Chiefs have placed defensive tackle Cam Thomas on waivers. That was a short-lived return to the pros for Thomas.
Thanksgiving is always known as a holiday where you bond with your family members. NFL families are no different. Certain teams may be busy on Thanksgiving preparing for the games we get to watch throughout the day, but the Watt brothers will have the day off, in theory. Who knows if those two ever actually take a day off.
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".
