A few weeks back, when reporters spoke with Eagles vice president Howie Roseman at the NFL Scouting combine about the team’s pending free agents, they expected to hear how important Nigel Bradham was to the defense, how hard Roseman intended to fight to retain the Birds’ top-tackling linebacker over the last two seasons. Roseman agreed that day that “Nigel is a tremendous player,” but he didn’t say a word about trying to bring him back.
Trey Burton was in Clearwater, Fla., Tuesday, throwing out a ceremonial first pitch before the Phillies’ game against the Rays. By the time Burton took the mound, he was already an ex-Eagle, at least in theory; though NFL free-agent contracts can’t be signed until Wednesday, the NFL Network reported Tuesday that Burton had agreed to a four-year, $32 million contract with Chicago.
The guy who threw the “Philly Special” fourth-down touchdown pass in the Super Bowl is leaving, as expected. But the guy who caught it seems to be staying, and that might have been Tuesday’s biggest Eagles news. The NFL Network reported that Eagles pending free agent tight end Trey Burton has agreed to a four-year, $32 million contract with the Chicago Bears, during the league’s 48-hour “legal tampering” period, which ends Wednesday, the official start of NFL free agency.
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".
