NFL Network Suspends Analysts Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

Cantor's allegations are part of a wrongful termination suit filed against NFL Enterprises in which she accuses the players-turned-analysts and former executive producer Eric Weinberger of the misconduct, citing multiple incidents.

Former NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp, who was sacked in 2015 after an arrest for soliciting prostitution, was also named in Cantor's lawsuit.

McNabb co-hosts a show on ESPN Radio and also occasionally appears on First Take, while Davis co-hosts a show on ESPN Radio from Los Angeles.

She says that Taylor sent her inappropriate pictures of himself and a video of himself in the shower.

Cantor said in the suit that Faulk fondled and groped her and asked "deeply personal and invasive questions" about her sex life.

The lawsuit, originally filed in California Superior Court in October but amended with the specific allegations against the employees on Monday, alleges that the woman was sacked from her job at the age of 51 in October 2016 after being accused of stealing clothes from an unnamed on-air personality.

Along with Taylor and Evans, the NFL Network also suspended Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk, a native of Louisiana.

NFL Network personalities are accused of a wide range of inappropriate behavior.

An NFL spokesperson told CBS Sports the trio was suspended "pending an investigation" into allegations detailed in an amended complaint filed by Jami L. Cantor, a former makeup artist who worked at the league-owned network. Faulk "became more aggressive", including one instance where he allegedly invited Cantor to his hotel room where she witnessed him expose his genitals and made sexually suggestive remarks. Cantor also said that Faulk pinned her against a wall and demanded oral sex while pulling his trousers down.

The Ringer told Kevin Draper of The New York Times that Weinberger was placed on "indefinite leave" Monday night, pending an investigation. NBC News was still attempting to reach Sapp for a comment. Cantor was sacked in October 2016, according to the report.

She said she was also sexually harassed by on-air talent. Taylor spent 12 seasons as a cornerback with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
