The plan had come almost completely into focus long before Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham took the podium on Thursday to talk about his brand-new contract. Then, quite unwittingly, his words all but signified a slam-dunk of a deal in which fellow starting linebacker Mychal Kendricks will be gone before this team plays another game. Asked about re-joining forces with middle linebacker Jordan Hicks, who missed a good portion of last season with an Achilles injury, Bradham went off.
Another day, another pivotal move by the Philadelphia Eagles. Just hours before the official start of free agency, they kept one of their best players from hitting the market when they re-signed linebacker Nigel Bradham to a five-year contract. Bradham this past season contributed 85 tackles, eight passes defensed, a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery which he returned for a touchdown. Rarely out of position, Bradham is almost always around the ball.
After a day of no news, the Philadelphia Eagles were back at it again Tuesday with a flurry of moves — the most significant being the release of their longest-tenured player. Popular tight end Brent Celek was jettisoned not long after news broke of their agreement to sign free-agent defensive tackle Haloti Ngata. Earlier, they restructured tackle Lane Johnson’s contract to gain enormous salary cap relief for this season. With Celek’s release comes $4 million in savings.
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".
