It’s very difficult times at the NFL Network as they’ve been dealing and now they have to deal with another blow after the network’s Vice President David Eaton resigned in the aftermath of the Network’s sexual harassment scandals.
“Last night David Eaton tendered his resignation from NFL Media effective immediately,” NFL Network spokesman Alex Riethmiller said in a statement.”
Over a week ago, the Network suspended on-air personalities Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans amid allegations brought up them by a former employee. Former employees Donovan McNabb and Warren Sapp were also named in the suit filed by former wardrobe stylist Jami Cantor.
But Eaton has left his pile of dirt as well, as it was discovered last week that he had past interactions with pornstars and escorts on his Twitter account. He attempted to delete the tweets, but screenshots were taken, before he ultimately deleted his account.

According to former NFL Network employees, these public Twitter chats that Eaton has been having was an “ongoing subject of discussion among employees for quiet some time; why they vanished yesterday isn’t clear.”
Eaton is the second high-profiled exec to resign from his position, as ESPN president John Skipper shockingly stepped down Monday due to substance abuse problems.
