Aside from Faulk and McNabb, the lawsuit names former players Heath Evans, Ike Taylor, Eric Davis and Warren Sapp, along with former NFL Network executive producer Eric Weinberger and NFL Network talent coordinator Marc Watts of committing various offensive and demeaning acts, which ultimately led Cantor to take legal action.

Cantor worked as a wardrobe stylist with the NFL Network from 2006 until she was sacked in October of 2016.

According to Bloomberg's outline of the complaint, Faulk is accused of fondling Cantor's breasts and buttocks, in addition to asking her "deeply personal and invasive questions" about her sex life.

"Former NFL players Donovan McNabb and Eric Davis will not appear on ESPN as the company investigates allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior while they were at NFL Network". McNabb now works for ESPN.

The three have been suspended "pending an investigation into these allegations", the statement said.

The lawsuit, filed against NFL Enterprises in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, lists several specific and detailed complaints against Faulk, Evans, and Weinberger. The former Eagles quarterback texted Cantor explicit comments, according to to the complaint. It also says the network is still using items of clothing on-air which Cantor paid for out of her own pocket without being justly compensated by the network. Her lawsuit asserts there is video evidence that clears her of any theft claims. And Evans is also accused of sending Cantor nude photographs, saying "inappropriate comments", and propositioning her.

"I think the progressive society that we are today, you might say why didn't this come out 20-30 years ago, I think it's all about timing". She also alleges that Sapp gave her sex toys as Christmas gifts for three straight years.

Cantor alleges that Faulk also "groped her from behind", and over time, became more aggressive, "stroking and pulling out his genitals in front of her" in a hotel room.

All three players are now analysts with the network. Warren Sapp, who was sacked from NFL Network in 2015, allegedly "gave sex toys as a Christmas gifts three years in a row [and] showed [Cantor] nude pictures of numerous women he claimed to have slept with".

Davis allegedly told Cantor, "You look like a woman who knows what to do in bed". The running back was the NFL's MVP in 2000 and won a Super Bowl with the Rams in the 2000 game.
