NFL Network Suspends Falk, Others Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

OCT. 08 NFL Network's Marshall Faulk on the field before the NFL game between the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts

Per TMZ Sports, Cantor alleged that former NFL Network analysts Warren Sapp, Donovan McNabb and Eric Davis, as well as former NFL Network executive producer Eric Weinberger, engaged in sexual misconduct against her too.

McNabb, the former Eagles quarterback who turned 41 years old last month, is no longer working for the NFL Network and has most recently been featured on ESPN as an analyst.

She has alleged that Faulk, a Pro Football Hall of Fame running back, greeted her by "fondling her breasts and groping her behind", according to the complaint. But Bloomberg reports that she filed an amended complaint on Monday detailing acts of harassment by several individuals who are not named as defendants in the suit.

In response to the claims, the NFL Network has suspended Faulk, Taylor and Evans. Cantor also said that Faulk pinned her against a wall and demanded oral sex while pulling his trousers down.

NFL Network declined to comment beyond its initial statement announcing the suspensions.

Also named is another analyst, Ike Taylor, who the filing indicates sent Cantor "sexually inappropriate" pictures of himself and a video of him masturbating in the shower.

Disney, Fox Deal Could Reportedly Close This Week
Zacks has just released a Special Report that spotlights this fast-emerging phenomenon and 6 tickers for taking advantage of it. The deal is said to be worth over $60 billion, but the exact amount is still not known.

Per the report Jami Cantor alleges in the lawsuit that she was subjected to sexually explicit comments, and she was groped on multiple occasions as well.

"Alex Riethmiller, a spokesman for the NFL Network, said Faulk, Taylor and Evans have been suspended from their duties pending an investigation into the allegations".

A spokesperson for The Ringer told NBC News: "These are very serious and disturbing allegations that we were made aware of today".

The Ringer told Kevin Draper of The New York Times that Weinberger was placed on "indefinite leave" Monday night, pending an investigation.

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 suit seeks unspecified damages for wrongful termination, sexual harassment, retaliation, defamation and age discrimination, alleging that the person who was hired to replace Cantor is 21 years younger than she.
