Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk and six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb are among five on-air pundits and a senior executive who have been suspended by ESPN, the NFL Network and Bill Simmons' The Ringer after a former co-worker alleged sexual misconduct in a lawsuit.

For former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan Mcnabb, finding his way in his National Football League afterlife seemed as though it would be an easy transition. Unfortunately, it's been anything but an easy transition.

He was sacked by Fox Sports after pleading guilty to a DUI offense in back in 2015. Unfortunately, however, all of that is at a standstill thanks to a recent accusation.

Jami Cantor served as a wardrobe stylist for the NFL Network from 2006 until October of 2016. She also made accusations against former players Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans, and former NFL Network executive Eric Weinberger. He says they have been "suspended from their duties at NFL Network pending an investigation into these allegations".

ESPN released a statement on McNabb and Davis today.


Cantor said that Weinberger, who left the network in 2015, groped her and put his crotch against her; that Davis made lewd comments and groped her; and that McNabb sent her sexually inappropriate text messages.

The lawsuit also said that Cantor had been harassed by former NFL player and ex-NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp, as well as by the former network employee Marc Watts.

So far, there have been no statements by the players.

NFL Network has suspended three analysts who were accused of sexual harassment in a lawsuit filed Monday, and ESPN is doing the same with two of its employees who were named in the same complaint.

Another sexual harassment scandal has been unleashed and this time it affects personnel at the NFL Network.
