ST. LOUIS – Former Rams running back and NFL Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk has been suspended from the NFL Network amid allegations of sexual harassment by a coworker.
According to a report in Bloomberg Business, Faulk is one of several retired players and studio analysts to be suspended.
The lawsuit is laid out in 30 pages. It was filed by Jami Cantor, a former wardrobe stylist, who worked for the NFL network from 2006 until she was fired in October of last year.
Faulk is not named specifically as a defendant but allegations are laid out against him. The suit alleges that Faulk fondled and groped Cantor. It also accuses Faulk of exposing himself to Cantor and at one point pinning her against a wall and demanding oral sex while he pulled his pants down. Finally, the suit claims Faulk asked Cantor deeply personal and invasive questions about her sex life.
Faulk, along with NFL analysts Heath Evans and Ike Taylor, were suspended pending the result of an investigation. Donovan McNabb was named in the lawsuit but has not yet been suspended.
A former NFL executive was also named in the lawsuit and accused of similar behavior.
The NFL network is investigating the allegations.
Faulk has sent a statement to FOX 2 news saying, “On the record. The worst lie a person can tell.”
The NFL Network has pulled the talent bios on its website from those involved in the allegations of sexual harassment: https://t.co/iXsWgJHXzH
