Four former football stars are under fire after being named in a recent sexual harassment lawsuit. Former Eagles player Donovan McNabb, Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk, former Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor and former Journeyman fullback Heath Evans have all been hit with allegations from the same woman, according to The Jasmine Brand.
The accuser, Jami Cantor, was a wardrobe stylist for the NFL Network before she was fired in October 2016. All four athletes worked for the network at some point. While McNabb is no longer employed by the station, Faulk, Taylor and Evans have all been suspended by the network pending further investigation.
McNabb allegedly sent Cantor sexually explicit messages and comments while working together. Taylor allegedly sent the stylist video of him masturbating in the shower as well as other “sexually inappropriate” photos of himself. Evans is also accused of sending Cantor nude photos of himself on two separate occasions.
Faulk allegedly took it a step further, inviting her to his hotel room only to pull out his privates unexpectedly. She also claims he pinned her against the wall, demanding oral sex while he pulled his pants down.

She also accuses Faulk of groping her breasts and behind, in addition to asking “deeply personal and invasive questions” about her sex life, such as her favorite sex position, would she consider dating Black men and if she likes oral sex, etc.
Former NFL Network executive Eric Weinberger has also been accused by Cantor. He allegedly sent “several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts” and told her she was “put on earth to pleasure me.” He allegedly made several lewd comments as well.
