Jami Cantor launched the allegations in a suit amended Monday, accusing several prominent former National Football League players of inappropriate sexual conduct.

Sapp was among several people named in a lawsuit by former NFL Network stylist Jami Cantor.

Early Wednesday morning another female broadcaster, Lindsay McCormick, alleged discrimination against the company during an interview.

Lindsay McCormick; television reporter, host and now the woman responsible for the latest mic drop on Instagram about the NFL Network and sexual harassment. The NFL has since confirmed that both McNabb and Davis, who each now hold positions as ESPN Radio analysts, have been suspended in light of the allegations against them.

Others named in the suit include former New England Patriots quarterback Heath Evans and NFL Network talent coordinator Marc Watts.

Cantor filed a complaint in Superior Court for the State of California, County of Los Angeles on Monday claiming that she was subjected to constant sexual misconduct by the former football greats employed by the network.

Also named in the suit is Hall-of-Famer Warren Sapp, who was sacked by the NFL Network in 2015 after he was arrested in Phoenix for propositioning a prostitute after covering the Super Bowl. He also reportedly invited her into his hotel room and pinned her against a wall, demanding oral sex.

Ike Taylor allegedly sent Cantor inappropriate pictures of himself including a nude video of him masturbating in the shower.

Cantor claims Weinberger said she was "put on earth to pleasure me" and once told her to meet him in a bathroom as he was 'super horny'. Sapp also denied showing the accuser nude photos of women he said he has slept with, though he said he may have showed her pictures of his girlfriend in a bathing suit.

Faulk, Evans and Taylor are accused of groping and making explicit remarks to Cantor.

In addition, Eric Weinberger, the president of the Bill Simmons Media Group and a former NFL Network executive, was suspended by the media group. McCormick also says that the unnamed executive no longer works for the network.

"These are very serious and disturbing allegations that we were made aware of today". "We are placing Eric on leave indefinitely until we have a better understanding of what transpired during his time at the N.F.L., and we will conduct our own internal investigation".
