While quarterback Colin Kaepernick struggles to find an NFL job, former teammates spoke out on his behalf Thursday afternoon. "I think he should get a shot," Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews said. Matthews and Kaepernick, who opted out of a $14.5 million option with the San Francisco 49ers, were college teammates at Nevada during the 2010 and 2011 seasons, connecting for 147 completions for 2,243 yards and 13 touchdowns.
His arm is a mix of inspirational quotes and reminders of his past. His most prized one, however, rests on his lower right leg. The piece depicts two Greek gods facing each other with the inscription "The World is Yours" adorned atop their heads. The gods are a representation of his kids, Zayden and Penelope, and the tattoo connects to a portrait of another duo Matthews holds dear to him: former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle.
Walking off the field after the morning session of Monday's training camp, Titans rookie center Corey Levin knows his work isn't done. "I've been through five college camps and I can tell this is different," said Levin, the Titans' sixth-round draft pick. In addition to adjusting to the highest level of football, the Chattanooga graduate is working through a position change from guard, where he garnered All-America honors in college, to center, essentially the leader of the offensive line.
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".
