NFL Network Suspends Marshall Faulk, 2 Others Over Sexual Harassment Claims

The NFL Network has suspended three of its analysts, all noted former players, over allegations of sexual harassment.

Three former NFL Network employees, executive producer Eric Weinberger and analysts Donovan McNabb and Warren Sapp, both former All-Pro players, are also named in the suit.

Cantor said Faulk would ask "deeply personal and invasive questions", about her sex life, along with fondling her breasts and groping her from behind.

According to the lawsuit, Cantor worked at the network for a decade and described a multiple incidents of sexually inappropriate encounters with several former National Football League players.

The NFL Network is the latest broadcast company to be rocked by allegations of sexual harassment.

NFL Network has suspended Faulk, Taylor, and Evans.

Cantor filed a wrongful termination case in October. Donovan McNabb, a former analyst, has also been included in the filing.

The accuser was a wardrobe stylist at the network and said that Weinberger sent multiple nude pictures to her and told her that she was "put on Earth to pleasure" him, according to Bloomberg. McNabb now works for ESPN as a radio host. Her allegations of being groped and subjected to sexually explicit comments, texts and photos are part of an amended complaint filed on Monday.

Per Bloomberg, McNabb representatives did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment. Her lawyer Laura Horton said, "It's outrageous conduct and I fully intend to hold the NFL Network responsible".

While these are not the first allegations made against sports personalities in the recent wave of sexual harassment scandals, they have been called the most high-profile. Weinberger now works for Bill Simmons' website and podcast network The Ringer. She said her supervisor terminated her in October 2016, when she was 51 years old, and replaced her with a 30-year-old.

The Hall of Famer is named in a lawsuit filed by Jami Cantor.
