Monday night it was reported by Bloomberg.com that a former NFL Network employee has filed a lawsuit against NFL Enterprises, alleging that she was the victim of sexual harassment during her time as an employee of the network.

The NFL Network has suspended current analysts Marshall Faulk, Heath Evans, and Ike Taylor pending an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment and assault.

According to a spokesman for the NFL Network, Faulk, Taylor and Evans have been suspended while an investigation into the accusations is conducted.

None of the seven is named as a respondent in the lawsuit, which was originally filed in October in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The lawsuit claims that Evans, McNabb, Taylor and Weinberger all sent Cantor sexually explicit and inappropriate text messages on separate occasions.

According to the complaint, Cantor told then-NFL talent coordinator Marc Watts about the harassment she had received.

The allegations against Faulk, who attended Carver High School in the 9th Ward, include an instance where he greeted her by "fondling her breasts and groping her behind", the report said. Bill Simmons could not be reached for comment by Bloomberg regarding Weinberger's role in his company. "She was terminated by her supervisor at the National Football League in October 2016, when she was 51, and replaced by a 30-year-old, according to the complaint".

Eric Weinberger (former Exec Producer of NFL Network): She claims that he sent her nude photos and graphic texts, telling her she should be "getting f*cked every day". "These are very serious and disturbing allegations that we were made aware of today".

Update (1:10 a.m., 12/12/17): The Ringer-the central property of Bill Simmons Media Group-has released a statement about Weinberger, who has been placed on leave indefinitely. Cantor alleges all five former players sexually harassed her during her time at the network.

Faulk starred for the Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Rams.

Davis, 49, played 13 seasons as a defensive back for four teams, most notably the San Francisco 49ers, with whom he won the Super Bowl after the 1994 season. Taylor spent his entire 12-year career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, winning two Super Bowl titles before retiring in 2015.
