Jerry Rice is the best football player to ever put on a 49ers uniform, and he is now upset with his former team. Rice is upset with the way the team has handled the Ray McDonald case, even though he has not been found guilty.
Rice says that Ray McDonald, who was arrested last month and accused of assaulting his pregnant baby mama, should not be playing for the 49ers unless and until he is cleared.
Another 49er is upset as well. Steve Young said that the 49ers should not hide behind “due process” and should instead take the same step that has already been taken with accused abusers Greg Hardy in Carolina, Adrian Peterson in Minnesota and Jonathan Dwyer in Arizona. Well Rice agrees.
“I think I’m just like Steve Young — I would have totally just taken him off the field until it’s resolved,” Rice told SI.com. “But they have decided to let him play, and it’s just unfortunate. I feel that when you have something that’s weighing you down like that, because it’s a very important topic, and it’s very sensitive, I just feel he should have been taken off the field.”
