Laravel 5.2 route model binding

Laravel has a documentation regarding route model binding which could be found here. But there is no example with regards to this kind of scenario:

Route::get('search/', '<a href="" class="__cf_email__" data-cfemail="6120131508020d04220e0f15130e0d0d041321120400130209">[email protected]</a>');

How to I implicitly bind a model into the route? I know I could do something like this directly on the controller’s method.
public function search(Model $model) {
    // some code here

But I’m just curious on how to do it on the routes instead.

I am after this approach

Route::get('search/{article}', function(ArticlesModel $articlesModel) {
    // this should be calling '<a href="" class="__cf_email__" data-cfemail="9edfeceaf7fdf2fbddf1f0eaecf1f2f2fbecdeedfbffecfdf6">[email protected]</a>'

Method 1

Because your variable is called $model, Laravel will look for a wildcard segment of the url written as {model}:

In routes.php:

Route::get('search/{article}', '<a href="" class="__cf_email__" data-cfemail="1051626479737c75537f7e64627f7c7c756250637571627378">[email protected]</a>');

In controller:
function search(Article $article) {
    //$article is the Article with the id from {article}, ie. articles/2 is article 2

Edit… the way that you are suggesting doesn’t really make sense. That would just be an extra step that is skipped entirely by just using "[email protected]". I think this code would function although I don’t recommend it:
Route::get('search/{article}', function(Article $article)
    $controller = App::make(ArticleController::class);
    return App::call([$controller, 'search'], compact('article'));

Method 2


Route::get('search/{article}', '<a href="" class="__cf_email__" data-cfemail="7130030518121d14321e1f05031e1d1d140331021410031219">[email protected]</a>');

public function search(Model $article) {
    // some code here
