O.J. Simpson shared his two cents on the Deshaun Watson controversy on Thursday.

Simpson — who was accused of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, and was later convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping in 2007 — segued from talking about Sam Darnold being traded to the Carolina Panthers into the Watson allegations.

Watson is facing several accusations of sexual misconduct, including exposing himself to women during massage sessions, among other allegations.

Simpson said Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater should look at going to the Houston Texans if the Watson drama ends with him leaving the Texans.

“I’m a big fan of Deshaun’s — the man has always had a sterling reputation and I’m a guy that knows what accusations can do to your reputation,” Simpson said, laughing into the camera.

“Anyway, I’m a little confused. Twenty-two women have come out accusing him of wrongdoing and I’m a little confused because in my entire life I think I’ve had four massage therapists and two of those were guys. I’m a little confused as to why he went through so many of them and I’m sure there’s a lot that have not accused him of anything,” the former NFL star said.

“I would hate not to see him play again. I know we have to let the system work itself out. But my prayers are with him.”
