NFL Network suspends 3 on sexual harassment allegations

NFL Network suspends 3 on sexual harassment allegations

The investigation was prompted by a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court by former NFL Network wardrobe stylist Jami Cantor that alleges improper behavior by several people.

The lawsuit and suspensions were first reported by Bloomberg News.

According to the Bloomburg report, the lawsuit also alleges misconduct by Eric Weinberger, a former NFL Network producer now working as president of a media group founded by Bill Simmons.

"Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor, and Heath Evans have been suspended from their duties at NFL Network pending an investigation into these allegations", an NFL Network rep said in a statement.

Pakistan Allows Kulbhushan Jadhav to Meet Wife, Mother on December 25
India had asked for "sovereign guarantee" from Pakistan that it would ensure safety and security of Jadhav's wife and mother. I can only share that in their reply Pakistan has given permission for spouse and mother to go and meet Jadhav.

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

Heath Evans (current on-air talent): Cantor says he sent nude photos to her.

Cantor alleges that throughout her "employment at National Football League, she was also subjected to ongoing and continuing sexual harassment by current and former on air talent and other employees of National Football League". "We are placing Eric on leave indefinitely until we have a better understanding of what transpired during his time at the NFL (Network), and we will conduct our own internal investigation". McNabb now works for ESPN as a radio host while Davis works for ESPNLA Radio, although ESPN said in a statement that "McNabb and Davis will not appear on our networks as that investigation proceeds". Bill Simmons could not be reached for comment by Bloomberg regarding Weinberger's role in his company. "As time went on, Mr. Faulk became more aggressive, such as inviting (Cantor) to his hotel room, stroking and pulling out his genitals in front of her, pointing to his crotch and asking Plaintiff, 'when are you gonna get on this already?'" the lawsuit said. Representatives for Faulk, Evans and Taylor did not immediately respond to requests for comment. McNabb left the NFL Network in 2013, but later lost a job with Fox Sports after pleading guilty to drunken driving in November '15.

Faulk spent four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts before arriving in St. Louis via a trade. The running back was the NFL's MVP in 2000 and won a Super Bowl with the Rams in the 2000 game. Taylor spent his entire 12-year career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, winning two Super Bowl titles before retiring in 2015.
