The NFL Network’s game-day broadcast team will look considerably different this season, as a sexual harassment scandal will result in the departure of Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk and two other analysts.

Faulk, Heath Evans and Ike Taylor all were suspended last year after a female employee claimed they were among five people at the network who groped and harassed her.
Jami Cantor worked as a wardrobe stylist for over a decade on the NFL Network. Her allegations have also led to analysts Heath Evans and Ike Taylor being jettisoned as well. Of the accusations to emerge, possibly the most scathing were lobbed at Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk.
Cantor alleges that Faulk, the former running back for the St. Louis Rams, asked her “deeply personal and invasive questions” about her sex life on numerous occasions. She claims that Faulk asked her what her favorite sex position was, whether she was into oral sex and if she dated black men. She also accused Faulk in the lawsuit of fondling her breasts and groping her butt.
“As time went on, Mr. Faulk became more aggressive, such as inviting (Cantor) to his hotel room, stroking and pulling out his genitals in front of her, pointing to his crotch and asking Plaintiff, ‘when are you gonna get on this already?’” the lawsuit said. “He also pinned (Cantor) against a wall, demanding oral sex while he pulled his pants down.”
The three former players aren’t expected to return to their jobs at NFL Network once the regular season commences, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports. The person requested anonymity because the terms of their release have not been finalized.
Faulk was a seven-time Pro Bowler with the Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Rams. He was MVP in 2000 and ranks 11th on the all-time rushing list.
He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011. He was hired by NFL Network in 2015.
