  • 3 NFL Network analysts suspended amid accusations of sexual harassment

McNabb and Davis are two of several players-turned-commentators named in a new filing in a lawsuit brought by a former wardrobe stylist at NFL Network, a group that also includes current employees Marshall Faulk, Heath Evans and Ike Taylor.

Jami Cantor, fired from the NFL Network in October 2016, updated court documents Monday against NFL Enterprises with far greater detail than her original suit filed in October about age and sex discrimination that she said led to wrongful termination and defamation.

The amended complaint accuses Faulk and Evans of having groped Cantor while she was at the network, while it accuses Taylor and McNabb of having sent her sexually inappropriate communications.

Shortly after, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that according to his sources, the Eagles are concerned that Wentz tore his left ACL. The Eagles answered right back as Carson Wentz quickly found tight end Brent Celek to tie the game at 7-7.

Cantor's suit alleges that Faulk groped her breasts and behind and asked her "invasive questions" about her sex life.

Brian McCarthy, spokesman for the NFL, which owns NFL Network, said Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans have been suspended pending an investigation. 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.

A former NFL Network employee has accused a former executive producer and multiple ex-players who work for the network of inappropriate conduct in a lawsuit amended on Monday, Bloomberg reported.

NFL Network declined to comment beyond its initial statement announcing the suspensions. Cantor's lawyer said that she has a copy of a video that allegedly shows Taylor exposing himself in the shower, the report said.

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

The Ringer suspended Weinberger indefinitely Tuesday, per Teddy Cutler of Newsweek.

He had bought the painting in 2013 for $127.5 million although he later accused a Swiss art dealer of overcharging him. It's one of fewer than 20 paintings by the Renaissance master known to exist and the only one in private hands.

Cantor said in the complaint that she informed Marc Watts, who coordinates talent for the National Football League, of the alleged advances, but that he said it's "part of the job when you look the way you do". Cantor also said that Sapp gifted her sex toys as Christmas gifts three-straight years and showed her nude images of women he'd slept with.
