NFL Network Suspends Marshall Faulk, Heath Evans, Ike Taylor Among Others Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

Oh, boy.

A former executive producer at the NFL Network and ex-players including Marshall Faulk, Heath Evans and Ike Taylor have been suspended by the NFL after they allegedly groped and made sexual explicit comments to female colleague Jami Cantor, according to Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg News:

According to Bloomberg News:

The allegations against the retired NFL players and Eric Weinberger, who’s now president of The Ringer, are part of a lawsuit against NFL Enterprises in Los Angeles Superior Court. The amended complaint filed Monday detailed the specific acts of harassment by several individuals.

Cantor, a wardrobe stylist at the NFL Network, said Weinberger sent “several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts” and told her she was “put on earth to pleasure me.” He also pressed his crotch against Cantor’s shoulder and asked her to touch it, according to the complaint.

She said she was also sexually harassed by on-air talent. Faulk, who’s an NFL Network analyst, would ask Cantor “deeply personal and invasive questions” about her sex life and fondled her breasts and groped her behind, according to the complaint.

Ike Taylor, also an analyst, sent Cantor “sexually inappropriate” pictures of himself and a video of him masturbating in the shower, according to the filing. Donovan McNabb, a former analyst, also texted her explicit comments, according to the compliant.

Cantor said she complained about the sexual advances from former NFL players the league’s talent coordinator, Marc Watts, but he did nothing and said, “It’s part of the job when you look the way you do,” according to the court complaint.

She said she also complained about other working conditions at the network, including a failure to reimburse her for expenses and a lack of compensation for the hours she worked. She was terminated by her supervisor at the NFL in October 2016, when she was 51, and replaced by a 30-year-old, according to the complaint.
