The legal tampering period is underway! It's the tantalizing consensual foreplay prior to free agency that is usually more thrilling than the actual contract consummation which follows it. Over the next few days, fans around the NFL can look forward to big names joining new teams, like...Whoops. Looks like we missed the fireworks. Monday's tampering news was mostly tamped down until ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reported Case Keenum would sign with the Broncos in the wee hours.
But not a free agent to payWelcome to free agency 2018, where your favorite team is flush with cash and ready to splurge but soon will discover that, instead of window shopping on Rodeo Drive, they are in a convenience store the night before a snowstorm, just after a bread-and-milk panic.
With the dust settling and workout results getting digested, this is a good time to go position-by-position and get a sense of the breadth and depth of this year's draft class. The quarterbacks were covered above. This group is as deep and strong as advertised pre-combine. Saquon Barkley will be gone in the top 10, while Derrius Guice, Nick Chubb, Sony Michel and Ronald Jones will go off the board by the middle of the second round as teams gobble up the sure things.
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".
