Multiple NFL Network Employees Sued For Sexual Harassment, Demanding Oral Sex

Share

The NFL Network suspended three former players turned analysts - Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans - amid allegations in a lawsuit of sexual harassment.

The lawsuit and suspensions are the latest in a wave of sexual misconduct allegations against prominent men in politics, entertainment and media.

The woman also makes claims against a number of former NFL Network employees and on-air personalities, including former Raider Warren Sapp, who was sacked by the network in 2015 after he was caught soliciting a prostitute at the Super Bowl; ex-49er Eric Davis, who now works for Fox Sports 1; former executive producer Eric Weinberger, who left in 2015 to become president of Bill Simmons's Ringer media group; and Donovan McNabb, who left the network in 2013. Faulk, according to the filing, allegedly fondled Cantor's breasts and exposed himself to her as he asked, "when are you going to get on this already?" She filed an amended complaint originally filed in Los Angeles Superior Court in October.

Faulk and Evans are still employed by the NFL Network, Weinberger has since left and now serves as the president of sports personality Bill Simmons's media group. Joel Segal, who represents Taylor, didn't immediately return a voicemail seeking comment.

McNabb and Davis, who now work for ESPN Radio, have each been suspended by that network.

Cantor used her own credit card to buy clothes for the National Football League employees but was not fully reimbursed, according to the suit, which also alleges she was required to work overtime without pay and was not given meal and rest breaks.

Donovan McNabb (former on-air talent) - sent text messages to plaintiff asking if "she was a squirter" and telling her she "looked like the kind of girl that squirted when getting f*cked". "There was a lot of stuff going on". It's not like a he-said, she-said sort of thing.

Faulk starred for the Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Rams.

Taylor, who last played in 2015, spent his entire 12-year career with the Steelers. He was the last (and second-ever) Philadelphia QB to lead Philadelphia to a Super Bowl and has been a frequent visitor to this year's 11-2 squad. Evans, a fullback, was in the league for 10 seasons, mostly with Seattle, New England and New Orleans.
