Condoleezza Rice thinks patience is what’s best when it comes to handling the allegations Deshaun Watson is facing.

The superstar quarterback for the Cleveland Browns is facing more than 20 allegations of sexual misconduct, and it seems like there’s no end in sight to more and more accusations coming out. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Watson has maintained his innocence, has never been charged with a crime and Rice, who is a huge fan of the team, thinks people should “keep an open mind” as we wait for more facts to come out.

“I’m someone who believes you keep an open mind until all of the facts are evident. I know the league is doing an investigation, the Browns have done an investigation. I will just wait to see what the outcome is. These are serious matters. I think every woman feels that these are serious matters, but hopefully people will get to the bottom of it and we’ll see where we are in a couple of months,” Rice explained when discussing Watson’s situation, according to Cleveland.com.

This seems like a bizarre situation for Rice to even get involved in. Yes, I understand she’s a huge fan of the team, but why would she want to weigh in on the allegations swirling around Watson?

It seems like a definition of a no-win situation. No matter what she said, she was bound to offend some people.

Having said that, she is 100% correct when it comes to waiting for all the facts, especially if you’re dealing with a legal matter.

This is America, and people should always be presumed innocent until proven otherwise in court. Of course, we all know Roger Goodell can do whatever he wants when it comes to punishments, and you better believe he damn sure won’t wait for any potential legal conclusion before deciding what to do.
