The woman who is suing NFL Enterprises used to work as a wardrobe stylist for the network.

Cantor additionally claims that Weinberger sent her graphic text messages and nude photos, telling her she should be "getting f****d every day".

Among Cantor's allegations, she said Taylor sent her "sexually inappropriate" photos of him masturbating.

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

A lawsuit accusing several former players, including Donovan McNabb, of sexually harassing an ex-NFL Network employee was made public on Monday.

Cantor was sacked from NFL Network in October 2016 after another employee accused her of stealing clothing.

Cantor said that she received explicit texts from Evans, McNabb, Taylor and Weinberger. He also pressed his crotch against Cantor's shoulder and asked her to touch it, according to the complaint. They are the latest in a string of celebrities, media personalities and politicians accused of sexual misconduct since early October, when a bombshell report about decades of alleged impropriety by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein opened a floodgate of complaints against prominent men. 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. He previously worked at NFL Network in 2012 and 2013 before moving to FS1. Cantor claims Ike Taylor sent her sexual pictures of himself and a video of him performing a sex act in the shower. The Hall of Fame running back also allegedly fondled her breasts and groped her behind. "Instead, NFL made it more hard for plaintiff to do her job by increasing her work load and cutting her hours".

Cantor was sacked in October 2016 after falsely being accused of stealing clothing from one of the employees, even though a viewing of an internal video would have shown she took nothing, the suit states.

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

At the time of Plaintiff's termination, she was 51 years old, and was replaced by a30-year-old employee. He was the last (and second-ever) Philadelphia QB to lead Philadelphia to a Super Bowl and has been a frequent visitor to this year's 11-2 squad.
