NFL Network suspends 3 on sexual harassment allegations

A spokesman for the NFL Network told Bloomberg that Faulk, Taylor and Evans have been suspended from their duties pending an investigation into the allegations.

Former NFL players and current NFL Network analysts Marshall Faulk, Heath Evans and Ike Taylor were named in a lawsuit alleging that they sexually harassed and assaulted a former employee ahead.

Two others, Eric Weinberger and Donovan McNabb, are also named in the lawsuit. Neither Sapp nor McNabb are now employed by the network, and as Soshnick mentions in his first tweet, Weinberger left the network to serve as the president of Bill Simmons Media Group.

Bloomberg reported no specifics about Evans' interactions with Cantor. He is also accused of pressing his crotch against her and asking her to touch him, according to Bloomberg. Weinberger and McNabb allegedly sent sexually explicit texts, while Weinberger sent several nude photos of himself as well.

Cantor alleges that Faulk asked her "deeply personal and invasive questions" regarding her sex life, fondled her breasts, and groped her butt.

McNabb, the former Eagles quarterback, was previously employed at NFL Network and has most recently worked as an analyst for ESPN.

Cantor was sacked in October 2016 and filed her case against NFL Enterprises in October, claiming wrongful termination.

"The supervisors knew about it, the supervisors observed it", Cantor's lawyer, Laura Horton, said in an interview on Monday. Joel Segal, who represents Taylor, didn't immediately return a voicemail seeking comment.

While men across politics, media, entertainment and the technology industry have been fired over allegations of sexual harassment, there have been few recent high-profile cases in the sports world.

The NFL Network is the latest broadcast company to be rocked by allegations of sexual harassment. She also said that she didn't get reimbursed for expenses, nor properly paid for working hours. She filed the lawsuit against NFL Enterprises, the NFL's media arm responsible for running the NFL Network. Instead, the 51-year-old says she was sacked in 2016 and replaced with a 30-year-old.
