Grand theft and domestic battery charges against Matt Elam were dismissed Wednesday, clearing the former Ravens safety who was arrested after an altercation with his girlfriend on May 22 in South Florida. Elam, who is an NFL free agent after his rookie contract expired with the Ravens following the 2016 season, is still facing drug charges related to his arrest in Miami in late February. That was the first of two arrests within a three-month span for the Ravens' 2013 first-round draft pick.
A sampling of the questions that I’m getting most often on social media these days and my attempt at answering them without the character limit:Even after signing Jeremy Maclin, could the Ravens still add Anquan Boldin? As long as Boldin remains available and intent on returning for his 15th NFL season, the Ravens are going to be mentioned as a potential suitor. At this point, though, the Ravens are content with what they have at wide receiver.
In April, the Ravens asked the NFL for a later bye, not wanting the traditional week off after their Sept. 24 game in London against the Jacksonville Jaguars because they deemed it too early in the season for a break. Several weeks later, they learned their request was granted and that their reward upon their return from London was a Week 4 home matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
