The woman claims Weinberger sent her "several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts" and told her she was "put on earth to pleasure me".

Former NFL Network executive Eric Weinberger, former NFL Network analysts Donovan McNabb, Eric Davis, and Hall of Famer Warren Sapp, and former NFL Network employee Marc Watts also are named in the lawsuit.

She said she complained multiple times but "nothing was done". In addition, he once pressed his crotch against Cantor's shoulder and requested she touch it, the complaint says.

"We are investigating, and McNabb and Davis will not appear on our networks as that investigation proceeds", ESPN vice president of communications Josh Krulewitz told USA TODAY Sports in a statement Tuesday morning.

Patricia Boyette, director of the Women's Resource Center at Loyola University says these high profile cases make it easier for workers to report sexual harassment in their workplace.

The three analysts suspended are Marshall Faulk, Heath Evans and Ike Taylor. It also alleges the "aggressive" Faulk invited Cantor to his hotel room, pulled out his genitals in front of her and pinned her to a wall, demanding oral sex.

The lawsuit was initially filed in October, with alleged complaints including age and sex discrimination, sexual harassment, hostile work environment, and wrongful termination. The company claimed she had stolen clothes, an accusation she denies.

Cantor used her own credit card to buy clothes for the National Football League employees but was not fully reimbursed, according to the suit, which also alleges she was required to work overtime without pay and was not given meal and rest breaks. Mr. Davis also asked Plaintiff to have rough sex with him, and said that he wanted to choke Plaintiff from behind until Plaintiff begged him to stop. An NFL representative told Bloomberg that Faulk has been suspended from the network.

The allegations include groping, sending inappropriate pictures and making sexually explicit comments. He's also accused of gifting Cantor sex toys for three Christmases in a row. 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". Those include him allegedly asking her if she "was a squirter" and asking her to "CUM to dinner with him", among other things.
