NFL Network has suspended three analysts amid new sexual harassment allegations that were filed back in October. Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor, and Heath Evans have all been suspended from the network pending the investigation of the allegations, as first reported by Bloomberg‘s Scott Soshnick. Other former employees being accused include Donovan McNabb, Warren Sapp, and former executive Eric Weinberger.

The accuser was a wardrobe stylist at the network and said that Weinberger sent multiple nude pictures to her and told her that she was “put on Earth to pleasure” him, according to Bloomberg. Weinberg now works at Bill Simmons’ company, The Ringer. Simmons didn’t respond to an email asking for his thoughts on the allegations on Monday.

Taylor sent “sexually inappropriate” pictures of himself, including a video of him masturbating in the shower, according to the accuser’s complaint. McNabb texted her explicit comments, she said. Faulk asked the accuser “deeply personal and invasive questions” about her sex life, he fondled her breasts, and groped her behind, according to the complaint.

The details of the accusations against Sapp and Evans weren’t included in the Bloomberg report and the full complaint hasn’t been made available to the public yet. However, records show that the complaint was filed on Oct. 6. The accuser also said that she told the league’s talent coordinator Marc Watts, but he told her that “it’s part of the job when you look the way you do,” according to the complaint.

The accuser also said in the complaint that she wasn’t fully reimbursed for the clothes she bought for the network’s wardrobe, she was forced to work overtime without pay, and was not given meal and rest breaks. She was fired from the network after being falsely accused of stealing clothing from one of the employees, while there’s no video evidence that she actually stole the items.

Faulk was inducted into the Football Hall of Fame in 2011 and Sapp was inducted in 2013.
