NFL Network Suspends Analysts Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

New Orleans native and NFL Hall-of Famer Marshall Faulk shown in a 2013 file image is one of three NFL Network analysts reportedly suspended amid a sex harassment investigation

NFL Network confirmed the suspension in a statement to Bloomberg.

NFL Network has suspended the analysts Marshall Faulk, Heath Evans and Ike Taylor "pending an investigation" into allegations of sexual harassment and assault, the network announced late Monday.

Cantor also claims that Eric Weinberger, who has gone on to become president of Bill Simmons' media group, sent nude photos of himself and explicit messages while she was with the company.

The NFL on Tuesday identified the three as Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans. Cantor first filed the case in October, alleging that she was wrongfully terminated.

Taylor and Evans, also both former National Football League players, were both accused in the complaint of sending explicit photos or videos of themselves in the nude with comments such as "you're making me horny". In addition, he once pressed his crotch against Cantor's shoulder and requested she touch it, the complaint says.

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".

The allegations against Faulk, who attended Carver High School in the 9th Ward, include an instance where he greeted her by "fondling her breasts and groping her behind", the report said.

Weinberger - Sent her "several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts", she said in her lawsuit. Eric Davis, another former NFL Network analyst now working for FS1 and ESPN Radio LA, was named as well.

"These are very serious and disturbing allegations that we were made aware of today", a spokesperson for The Ringer said in a statement, according to NBC News. McNabb and Sapp are no longer with the NFL Network. The wrongful termination suit mentions sexual harassment, but it does not name any names or describe any incidents in detail.

The original suit alleges that Cantor was sacked in October 2016 after having falsely been accused of stealing clothes from a network employee.

Faulk spent four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts before arriving in St. Louis via a trade.

Taylor played 12 seasons with the Steelers, winning two Super Bowl titles before retiring in 2015. The running back was the NFL's MVP in 2000 and won a Super Bowl with the Rams in the 2000 game.
