AROUND THE WEB: 

-- Massachusetts is in need of medical supplies during the coronavirus and Robert Kraft is stepping in to help.

The Patriots have sent the team plane to China to pick up personal protective equipment and is reportedly expected to land at Logan Airport in Boston on Thursday. 

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, Kraft and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito will reportedly greet the plane when it lands before the state’s National Guard will transport the equipment to a stockpile in Marlboro. 

When Baker was asked at a press conference Wednesday about protective equipment, he hinted at an update on Thursday.

"I think we're gonna have a lot more to say about gear tomorrow," Baker said Wednesday. "I'm gonna leave it at that."

"We've been working on a variety of processes and opportunities to make sure that we have the gear that we need to serve our medical community and our first responders," he continued. "I've also said that I expected to have more information on this later this week, and I do.”

-- O.J. Simpson, of all people, has now weighed in on the Tiger King documentary and is adamant that Carole Baskin killed her husband.

“There’s not a shred of doubt in my mind that that lady’s husband is tiger sashimi right now…I’m just saying,” Simpson said in his video posted to Twitter on Wednesday. 

Simpson, of course, was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in 1995, but many suspect his guilt.
