The Titans released nose tackle Sylvester Williams on Saturday after one disappointing season with the team. Williams signed a three-year, $16.5 million contract last offseason, after spending his first four seasons with the Broncos, who drafted him with the 28th overall pick in the first round in 2013. Williams helped Denver win Super Bowl 50, but he managed just 20 tackles in 15 games, 11 of them starts, in Tennessee.
The Titans’ backfield could be the most dynamic in the NFL. Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry were the second-and third-most elusive running backs in the league last season, according to an analysis of Next Gen Stats metrics by NFL.com. Tracking data from microchips in players’ shoulder pads were used to determine the average yards gained after defenders closed to within one yard, whether by breaking tackles or other evasion.
The Titans cut veteran defensive lineman Karl Klug on Friday, saying goodbye to a popular and hard-working player who was voted the team’s Ed Block Courage Award winner last season. Klug, who turns 30 later this month, had 18 tackles and 1½ sacks in 15 games last season, after recovering from a torn Achilles tendon suffered late in 2016. The Titans save about $2.5 million by releasing Klug, a fifth-round draft pick in 2011 who was entering the final year of his contract. There is no dead cap hit.
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".
