NFL Network Suspends Falk, Others Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

  • OCT. 08 NFL Network's Marshall Faulk on the field before the NFL game between the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts

Jami Cantor, who worked at the network for a decade, also accused former NFL Network employees - Donovan McNabb, who currently works for ESPN, Eric Weinberger, who now leads of Bill Simmons' media group, and Warren Sapp - of sexual harassment, according to the complaint obtained by USA Today Sports. Eric Davis, another former NFL Network analyst now working for FS1 and ESPN Radio LA, was named as well.

The lawsuit claims that Evans, McNabb, Taylor and Weinberger all sent Cantor sexually explicit and inappropriate text messages on separate occasions.

Marsall Faulk (current on-air talent): Cantor claims that Faulk asked "invasive" questions about sex, "such as favorite sex position, whether she liked oral sex, and whether she dated black men".

None of the seven is named as a respondent in the lawsuit, which was originally filed in October in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

As part of the lawsuit, three other retired players were suspended from the NFL Network - including Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk. Cantor also said that Faulk pinned her against a wall and demanded oral sex while pulling his trousers down.

Cantor alleges that Weinberger sent her "several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts".

Former NFL player and NFL Network's Heath Evans is interviewed during a media availability on set at the NFL Network studios, Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2015, in Culver City, California.

Taylor is accused of sending Cantor sexually inappropriate pictures of himself and video of himself masturbating in the shower.

Bloomberg's Jordyn Holman and Scott Soshnick were first to report the story Tuesday night.

The Ringer suspended Weinberger indefinitely Tuesday, per Teddy Cutler of Newsweek.

In the lawsuit, Cantor claims she worked in wardrobe and makeup, as "Part of Plaintiff's job duties was to build a wardrobe closet so the on-air talent had clothes to wear on the National Football League shows".

The suit seeks unspecified damages for wrongful termination, sexual harassment, retaliation, defamation and age discrimination, alleging that the person who was hired to replace Cantor is 21 years younger than she.
