Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb is mentioned in a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment at the NFL Network.

Cantor was sacked in October 2016 after she claims she complained about working conditions at the network and the sexual advances made towards her. According to the complaint, via the report, McNabb texted Cantor explicit comments.

The suit, a copy of which has been uploaded by Deadspin, alleges Faulk groped Cantor's breasts and behind, and asked her "deeply personal and invasive questions" about her sex life.

The trio of analysts, all former NFL players, were named in a lawsuit by former NFL Network employee Jami Cantor, who worked as a wardrobe stylist with the company from 2006 until her October 2016 dismissal. Jordan Bazant, who represents Faulk and Evans, didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the allegations. The amendment to the suit filed on Monday goes into greater detail of the alleged instances of harassment and also names the defendants, Deadspin reported. Laura Horton, a lawyer for Cantor, said by phone "it's outrageous conduct and I fully intend to hold the NFL Network responsible". The ex-players worked as on-screen talent for NFL Network, while Weinberger is now president of Bill Simmons' media group.

Donovan McNabb previously served as an analyst for NFL Network.

Cantor initially filed the case in October, claiming wrongful termination.

While these are not the first allegations made against sports personalities in the recent wave of sexual harassment scandals, they have been called the most high-profile. She also says that Taylor and Weinberger sent her nude photos without consent, while McNabb made "explicit" texts. This is part of a filed against a list of former NFL players, and NFL Enterprises. Instead, the 51-year-old says she was sacked in 2016 and replaced with a 30-year-old.
