Several NFL Network Analysts Suspended Due to Sexual Harassment Allegations

The latest in sexual misconduct allegations within the public eye has now led to the suspensions of several on-air personalities of the NFL Network. As first reported by Bloomberg, Jami Cantor — a female wardrobe stylist who had been employed at NFL Network until 2016 — filed a lawsuit against former NFL Network executive producer Eric Weinberger and current or former studio analysts (former NFL players) Marshall Faulk, Warren Sapp, Donovan McNabb, Ike Taylor, and Heath Evans. An amended complaint to the lawsuit on Dec. 11 detailed specific acts of harassment allegedly done by the accused.

Later on Dec. 11, NFL Network announced it has suspended Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor, and Heath Evans.

Weinberger has since left NFL Network and is currently president of sports commentator Bill Simmons’ media group which runs the sports and pop culture media website The Ringer. Weinberger has since been placed on indefinite leave from his current occupation.
