  • Marshall Faulk, Donovan McNabb and others allegedly sexually harassed former NFL Network female employee: report

He also pressed his crotch against Cantor's shoulder and asked her to touch it, according to the complaint.

The lawsuit, originally filed in California Superior Court in October but amended with the specific allegations against the employees on Monday, alleges that the woman was sacked from her job at the age of 51 in October 2016 after being accused of stealing clothes from an unnamed on-air personality. The lawsuit alleges age and sex discrimination, sexual harassment that created a hostile work environment, wrongful termination and defamation, according to a report from USA Today.

The NFL Network has suspended multiple analysts pending an investigation. Cantor also claims that Taylor sent her inappropriate pictures and a video of himself masturbating.

Another of Cantor's allegations include that she was forced to work in the men's restroom, at which point she said Sapp urinated in front of her.

The lawsuit accuses McNabb - the former star quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles - of sending harassing text messages to Cantor. "He also pinned (Cantor) against a wall, demanding oral sex while he pulled his trousers down".
