The league's three Florida-based teams - the Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers - have joined with the NFL Foundation to do a little good. It was announced on Friday that the four groups are combining to donate $400,000 to the OneOrlando Fund, created to support victims' families as well as survivors of the Pulse nightclub massacre on June 12, in which 49 indivduals were killed. In a statement, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said, "Our city has just begun to recover from the impact of the Pulse tragedy.
Auston Matthews is the consensus first overall pick, but it could also be the Year of the Finn at the NHL entry draft, the annual selection of top prospects that helps clubs replenish their rosters.

If the Leafs do as expected on Friday and select Matthews, then the hockey-mad city of Toronto would make the 18-year-old American the first player from the desert city of Phoenix, Arizona to be picked number one.
