Every player on the Cardinals’ roster except one attended organized team activities in May and June. That one, safety Budda Baker, put himself through organized individual activities in order to not fall too far behind his teammates. Baker, the team’s second-round pick this year, couldn’t attend OTAs because classes were still underway at the University of Washington. So he worked remotely back home in the Seattle area.
Elie Bouka’s difficulty in transitioning from college football in Canada to the NFL began not long after he signed a rookie free agent contract with the Cardinals in May 2016. First, there was the first name. Bouka is from Quebec, and in French his first name is pronounced “e-LEE,” but that was complicated to explain to Americans. It was simpler to go by Eli, so that’s how Bouka (BOO-kuh) asked the Cardinals to pronounce and spell his name. That lasted until his mother came to town.
At 33, Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald continues to produce on the field and win awards for the way he handles himself off it. The Pro Football Writers of America announced on Tuesday that Fitzgerald has been selected as its 2017 Good Guy Award winner. The award is given to the NFL player “for his qualities and professional style in helping pro football writers do their jobs,” according to the PFWA’s press release announcing the winner.
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".
