Marshall Faulk suspended by NFL Network pending sexual harassment investigation

Marshall Faulk suspended by NFL Network pending sexual harassment investigation

The NFL suspended three analysts on Monday night, including Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk, pending investigation into sexual harassment allegations following a lawsuit from a former employee.

The accuser is Jami Cantor, who was hired by NFL Network in 2006 as a wardrobe stylist.

According to Bloomberg, Cantor's amended complaint says that Taylor sent her inappropriate pictures as well an explicit video, and that Faulk and Evans groped her, and made inappropriate comments.

Eric Weinberger, the president of the Bill Simmons Media Group and a former NFL Network executive, was suspended by the media group as a result of allegations made about him in the lawsuit.

McNabb, who joined NFL Network as an analyst in 2012 before leaving for Fox and later beIN Sports, allegedly sent Cantor explicit messages and comments during his time at NFL Network.

Plus, the woman claims she was paid less than other people younger than her and that the network discriminated against her because of her age, created a hostile working environment by not doing anything about the sexual harassment and caused her physical and emotional distress.

Cantor first filed the case in October, alleging that she was wrongfully terminated.

Former NFL Network executive Eric Weinberger and former NFL Network analyst Donovan McNabb also are named in the lawsuit. McNabb no longer works for NFL Network. He also pressed his crotch against Cantor's shoulder and asked her to touch it, according to the complaint. The Network fired Sapp in 2015 after he was accused of assault and soliciting prostitution.

Simmons, whose media properties include the website the Ringer, has praised Weinberger in the past. She was terminated by her supervisor at the National Football League in October 2016, when she was 51, and replaced by a 30-year-old, according to the complaint. This is part of a filed against a list of former NFL players, and NFL Enterprises.
