Former NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp was also named in the lawsuit, as well as former network employee Marc Watts. He says they have been "suspended from their duties at NFL Network pending an investigation into these allegations".

NFL Network analysts and former NFL players Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans were suspended Monday night in response to a lawsuit filed by a former wardrobe stylist who alleged she suffered sexual harassment by the three and others.

Former NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp, who was sacked in 2015 after an arrest for soliciting prostitution, was also named in Cantor's lawsuit. McNabb now works for ESPN as a radio host while Davis works for ESPNLA Radio, although ESPN said in a statement that "McNabb and Davis will not appear on our networks as that investigation proceeds".

According to the Bloomburg report, the lawsuit also alleges misconduct by Eric Weinberger, a former NFL Network producer now working as president of a media group founded by Bill Simmons.

Did Donald Trump Just Sexually Harass Kirsten Gillibrand on Twitter?
Other Twitter users noticed the president's choice of language and asked what the tweet was supposed to imply about the senator. Fallon appeared to be referring to the fact sexual harassment is an issue that Gillibrand has taken on politically.

The allegations came in an amended complaint that is part of a civil lawsuit originally filed in Los Angeles Superior Court by Jami Cantor in October. "These are very serious and disturbing allegations that we were made aware of today".

In the complaint, Cantor says that Faulk, a Hall of Fame running back, asked personal questions about her sex life, fondled her and pulled out his genitals while demanding oral sex; that Evans, a former fullback, sent nude pictures and propositioned her; and that Taylor, a former cornerback, sent her a video that showed him masturbating. Mr. Sapp also gave Plaintiff sex toys as a Christmas gifts three years in a row, showed Plaintiff nude pictures of numerous women he claimed to have slept with, and openly talked about his sex life in front of Plaintiff and other National Football League employees, including supervisors. He also pressed his crotch against Cantor's shoulder and asked her to touch it, according to the complaint. "It was insidious in this particular environment". The Rams defeated the Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl XXXIV.

Evans played with four different teams in 10 seasons, winning a championship with the Saints in 2010 before retiring the following year.
