A former NFL Network employee has come forward claiming that she’d been sexually harassed by a former network executive and several former players who are either current or former NFL Network employees, according to a report from Bloomberg sports business reporters Scott Soshnick and Jordyn Holman.
Jami Cantor was a colleague of Marshall Faulk, Warren Sapp, Donovan McNabb, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans when she was an NFL Network employee. Cantor alleges all five former players sexually harassed her during her time at the network.
Cantor also claims that Eric Weinberger, who has gone on to become president of Bill Simmons’ media group, sent nude photos of himself and explicit messages while she was with the company. Weinberger was an executive producer at the time.
An amended complaint details the nature of the harassment by all six of the individuals mentioned and Holman and Soshnick detailed nude photos and videos along with lewd text messages. Cantor also claims that she informed talent coordinator Marc Watts of the issues and that he told her, “Its part of the job when you look the way you do.”
NFL Network issued a statement claiming that Faulk, Taylor and Evans, who are still employed by the company, have been suspended pending an investigation.
Cantor is suing NFL Network for wrongful termination after she was terminated in October 2016. She was a wardrobe stylist for the company. The lawsuit originated in California Superior Court.
