According to Bloomberg News, the names in the suit include Marshall Faulk, Heath Evans, Ike Taylor, Donovan McNabb, Eric Davis, Warren Sapp and former NFL Network executive producer Eric Weinberger.

In an amended complaint to a wrongful termination lawsuit filed in October, Jami Cantor, a former wardrobe stylist with the NFL Network from 2006 until October 2016, accuses McNabb of texting her explicit comments during his time as an analyst for the network.

The NFL Network is the latest broadcast company to be rocked by allegations of sexual harassment. She filed an amended complaint on Monday that more fully laid out the allegations of sexual harassment and assault against the three analysts, all former N.F.L. players.

Alex Riethmiller, a spokesman for the NFL Network, said Faulk, Taylor and Evans have been suspended from their duties pending an investigation into the allegations.

Cantor also alleges she was sexually harassed by former NFL Network executive Eric Weinberger. Weinberg is accused of pressing his crotch against her and asking her to touch it.

Colts fall to the Bills after snowy game in Buffalo
The Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts have played out a gridiron war of attrition in an incredible snow blizzard in the NFL . After a wild sequence forced overtime, LeSean McCoy played hero, scoring a walk-off touchdown to seal the game for the Bills.

The details of the accusations against Sapp and Evans weren't included in the Bloomberg report and the full complaint hasn't been made available to the public yet.

Prior to the suspension, Faulk was a pro football analyst for NFL Total Access, Thursday Night Football and NFL GameDay Morning on the NFL Network. McNabb now works for ESPN as a radio host.

Laura Horton, a lawyer for Cantor, spoke with Bloomberg about the case. In addition to the incidents described above, Cantor notes Weinberger requesting that she join him in an office bathroom because he was "super horny" and sending her a text reading, "watching you walk down the hall makes me crazy, your ass drives me insane". Weinberger now works for Bill Simmons' website and podcast network The Ringer.

The disturbing allegations comes after a wave of high-profile men in entertainment and politics have been accused of sexual harassment, including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Matt Lauer and Roy Moore, among others.
