ESPN Fires Two Former NFL Players

ESPN Fires Two Former NFL Players

ESPN reportedly fired Donovan McNabb and Eric Davis on Friday after they were accused of sexual harassment in a lawsuit filed by former NFL Network employee Jami Cantor last month.

The alleged harassment occurred while McNabb and Davis worked for the NFL Network, before they joined ESPN.

According to the suit, Davis allegedly slid his hand between Cantor's legs, grabbed her, rubbed up against her and made lewd comments to her. Cantor alleges that when she once slapped his hand away he aggressively told her never to push his hand away again.

ESPN has also cut ties with former NFL cornerback Eric Davis, who was also accused of inappropriate behavior by a former NFL Network staffer. McNabb later was sacked by Fox Sports after pleading guilty to a DUI offense in 2015. Davis co-hosted an ESPN L.A. Radio show. Cantor's lawsuit, filed against the National Football League, included accusations of sex/gender discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful termination.

Because of revelations in the lawsuit, NFL Net suspended former players Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans, pending its own investigation.

No word from the NFL Network on when it expects to complete its investigation.

Now, ESPN confirms both McNabb and Davis are no longer ESPN employees.
