ESPN suspends former National Football League players over sexual allegations

Kansas City Chiefs v Philadelphia Eagles

The lawsuit and suspensions were first reported by Bloomberg News.

According to the complaint, Weinberger pressed his crotch against her shoulder and asked her to touch it, in addition sending her "several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts" and telling her she was "put on earth to pleasure me".

McNabb, along with ex-NFL players Heath Evans, Marshall Faulk and Ike Taylor, is being accused of sexual harassment by Jami Cantor, a former female colleague at the NFL Network.

McNabb was not alone, as the accuser also named Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk, former Pittsburgh Steeler Ike Taylor, Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp, and former Patriot Heath Evans in her allegations.

Cantor alleged that Weinberger, a former executive producer at the network, sent her "several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit acts".

Cantor originally filed a wrongful termination case in October and on Monday filed a more detailed complaint.

The communications from Taylor allegedly included video of him masturbating, while the alleged communications from McNabb, who now works for BeIN Sports and ESPN Radio, were text only, according to the complaint.

Late on Monday, The Ringer placed Weinberger on leave indefinitely. Cantor also said that Faulk pinned her against a wall and demanded oral sex while pulling his trousers down.

NBC News reached out to Faulk, Taylor, Evans, McNabb, Weinberger and Davis for their responses to the allegations, but had not received any replies.

"These are very serious and disturbing allegations that we were made aware of today", a spokesman for the Bill Simmons Media Group said in a statement.

In the lawsuit, Cantor claims she worked in wardrobe and makeup, as "Part of Plaintiff's job duties was to build a wardrobe closet so the on-air talent had clothes to wear on the National Football League shows". This is part of a filed against a list of former NFL players, and NFL Enterprises. It was his second DUI arrest in less than two years. Faulk, a seven-time Pro Bowler who played for the Indianapolis Colts and the St. Louis Rams, won the Super Bowl with the Rams after the 1999 season and retired in 2007.
