NFL Network suspends Marshall Faulk, 2 others amid sexual harassment claims

Posted December 14, 2017

Some of those details include lewd acts, including sexually explicit pictures, and even physical restraint.

Five former NFL players - three who work for the NFL Network and two for ESPN - have been suspended following a sexual harassment lawsuit by a former NFL Network employee.

Eric Weinberger, a former NFL Network executive and president of Bill Simmons Media Group, was also suspended in light of allegations contained in Cantor's lawsuit. Hall of Famer Warren Moon has also been sued by a former employee for sexual harassment.

Cantor, who was sacked from NFL Network in October 2016, is seeking damages including back pay, future lost income, etc. None of the ddefendants have addressed the allegations at this time. Cantor's lawyer said that she has a copy of a video that allegedly shows Taylor exposing himself in the shower, the report said. An NFL spokesman said all three analysts were "suspended from their duties at NFL Network pending an investigation into these allegations". The company claimed she had stolen clothes, an accusation she denies. The former Eagles quarterback texted Cantor explicit comments, according to to the complaint.

"Mr. Davis also asked Plaintiff to have rough sex with him, and said that he wanted to choke Plaintiff from behind until Plaintiff begged him to stop", the complaint alleges. "Instead, NFL made it more hard for plaintiff to do her job by increasing her work load and cutting her hours".

Cantor alleges that Faulk also "groped her from behind", and over time, became more aggressive, "stroking and pulling out his genitals in front of her" in a hotel room.

After complaining to then-NFL Network Talent coordinator Marc Watts, Cantor said she was told, "It's part of the job when you do what you do".

Faulk, a San Diego State University star, played 12 seasons in the National Football League from 1994 to 2005, winning one Super Bowl with the then St. Louis Rams. Warren Sapp, who was sacked from NFL Network in 2015, allegedly "gave sex toys as a Christmas gifts three years in a row [and] showed [Cantor] nude pictures of numerous women he claimed to have slept with". She said in her lawsuit that Evans made several comments to her, including him saying that he "needed to get in (Cantor) deep and hard".
