NFL Network suspensions have practically wiped out its on-air TV team after sexual allegations made by the same woman, a former wardrobe stylist.

The New York Times reported the football network suspended analysts Marshall Faulk, Heath Evans, and Ike Taylor, among several others, after claims of sexual harassment by Jami Cantor.

The allegations came in an amended complaint filed on Monday in a wrongful termination lawsuit accusing several current and former NFL Network employees of harassment.

In addition to the three suspended analysists, others named include former executive producer Eric Weinberger, Warren Sapp and Donovan McNabb. Accusation include either allegedly groping or making sexually explicit comments to Cantor, Fox News reported.

In the complaint, obtained by Bloomberg News, Cantor claims Weinberger sent “several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts” and told her she was “put on earth to pleasure me.”

According to the filing, Faulk groped Cantor and asked her “deeply personal and invasive questions,” while Taylor sent “sexually inappropriate” pictures of himself as well as a video of him masturbating in the shower and McNabb submitted explicit texts to her.

Cantor claimed to have reached out to Marc Watts, the league’s talent coordinator, and informed him of the sexual advances but he responded by saying it was “part of the job when you look the way you do,” Variety reported.

Alex Riethmiller, a spokesman for the NFL Network, confirmed that Faulk, Taylor and Evans had been put on suspension while investigations into the allegations take place, Bloomberg reported.

Weinberger was suspended from his current position as the president of the Bill Simmons Media Group.

“These are very serious and disturbing allegations that we were made aware of today,” a spokesman for the company said in a statement, according to The New York Times.

“We are placing Eric on leave indefinitely until we have a better understanding of what transpired during his time at the N.F.L., and we will conduct our own internal investigation.”
