NFL Network analysts suspended amid sexual harassment probe

Three analysts who work for the NFL Network have been suspended after Jami Cantor, the network’s former stylist, filed a complaint against NFL Enterprises claiming that she experienced sexual harassment by several individuals while she was working at the company. NFL Network affirmed the suspension in a statement to Bloomberg.

The lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, identifies Eric Weinberger, a former executive producer at NFL Network and current president of Bill Simmons’s media group, along with Marshall Faulk and Heath Evans, retired players who provide on-air commentary, according to the New York Times.

The complaint alleges that Weinberger pressed his crotch against her shoulder and asked her to touch it, and also sent her “several nude pictures and sexually explicit texts” and saying that she was “put on earth to pleasure me.”

Cantor claims that Faulk asked her “personal and invasive questions” about her sex life, touched her breasts, and groped her butt.

Another analyst, Ike Taylor, is also named in the suit alleging that he sent Cantor “sexually inappropriate” photos of himself and a video of him masturbating. Donovan McNabb, a former analyst, has also been identified in the filing.

The men cited in the suit are not included as defendants.

According to a spokesperson for the NFL Network, Faulk, Taylor, and Evans have been put on suspension while an investigation into the accusations is carried out.

Cantor said that she told Marc Watts, who coordinates talent for the NFL, of the sexual advances, but that he noted it’s “part of the job when you look the way you do.” Cantor also states that the network did not compensate her for expenses, and neglected to pay her adequately for the hours she worked.
