NFL Network Suspends Analysts After Sexual Harassment Accusations From Former Employee

Tuesday, 12 Dec, 2017

NFL Network has suspended three analysts amid new sexual harassment allegations that were filed back in October. Weinberger, now president of "The Ringer" website, has been placed on leave.

The NFL Network suspended Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans from their duties at the network, according to Sports Illustrated Now. Cantor also noted that Weinberger said on one occasion that she was "put on earth to pleasure me" and pressed his crotch against her, asking her to touch it.

Cantor also claimed Taylor, forwarded "sexually inappropriate" pictures of himself, according to the filing.

Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is among five ex-NFL players that have been accused of sexual misconduct by a former NFL Network staffer.

According to Bloomberg, the allegations come via Jami Cantor, a former wardrobe stylist at the network.

The suit also said Cantor had complained of the harassment to Marc Watts, the NFL's talent coordinator, who allegedly failed to act, saying: "It's part of the job when you look the way you do". Joel Segal, who represents Taylor, didn't immediately return a voicemail seeking comment. McNabb left the NFL Network back in 2013 and was sacked by Fox Sports after pleading guilty to a DUI offense in 2015.

Bloomberg states that it has not received comment in attempts to contact Faulk, Evans, Taylor, McNabb and Weinberger.

The disturbing allegations comes after a wave of high-profile men in entertainment and politics have been accused of sexual harassment, including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Matt Lauer and Roy Moore, among others. She also said that she didn't get reimbursed for expenses, nor properly paid for working hours. She said her supervisor terminated her in October 2016, when she was 51 years old, and replaced her with a 30-year-old.

Cantor filed the lawsuit against NFL Enterprises in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday.
