Cantor named Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor, Warren Sapp, Donovan McNabb, Heath Evans, Eric Davis, and Eric Weinberger in her suit.

Cantor also alleges in the complaint that former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb, who previously worked as a commentator on the NFL Network and now, ESPN, sent her "sexually inappropriate comments" by text.

She claims McNabb sent her "sexually inappropriate comments via text message", including asking if she was a "squirter", saying she "looked like the kind of girl that squirted when getting f-ed", "c-m to dinner with me" and "why don't you c-m over after work", according to the lawsuit.

According to Bloomberg's outline of the complaint, Faulk is accused of fondling Cantor's breasts and buttocks, in addition to asking her "deeply personal and invasive questions" about her sex life. Former NFL Network executive producer Eric Weinberger is also now on leave at The Ringer. Faulk, Taylor, and Evans, all analysts at the NFL Network, have been suspended pending the results of an investigation.

An ESPN rep sent the following statement to BET.com about McNabb and Davis, who are contributors to the network.

NFL Network suspends 3 analysts over sexual misconduct lawsuit

On Monday, Cantor's attorneys filed an amended complaint - you can read it here - that lists out a number of graphic details - Deadspin has some of them listed here, warning they are NSFW - against various employees.

Cantor alleges that Faulk also "groped her from behind", and over time, became more aggressive, "stroking and pulling out his genitals in front of her" in a hotel room. The woman denies stealing the clothes and says security-camera footage would back up her claim. "Instead, NFL made it more hard for plaintiff to do her job by increasing her work load and cutting her hours".

Taylor sent Cantor "sexually inappropriate" pictures of himself and a video of him masturbating in the shower, according to the filing. TMZ reported that Cantor says she was "subjected to ongoing and continuing sexual harassment by current and former on-air talent".

Three former NFL players with close ties to New Orleans are accused of sexual misconduct while on the job as football analysts. Cantor also accused Weinberger of telling her that she "was put on earth to pleasure (him)", adding that he once pressed his crotch against her shoulder and asked her to touch it. Evans played for the Patriots from 2005 to 2009.
