Eric Davis and Donovan McNabb, both former NFL players, were terminated from their positions at ESPN. Unfortunately, both men are under investigation of sexual misconduct allegations from when they were working at for the NFL Network.
According to a statement from ESPN themselves, the two no longer work for the company. This news comes in after the many sexual accusation charges have come in over the past months.
Back in October, Jami Cantor, a former NFL Network employee filed a lawsuit against NFL Enterprises. McNabb and Davis’s names came up in the lawsuit, which was filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court.

McNabb and Davis were not the only names in the suit. Back in December, The NFL Network chose to suspend Marshall Faulk, a Pro Football Hall of Famer. They also let go two analysts named in the suit; Ike Taylor and Heath Evans. The reason for their immediate departure was due to the pending investigation against the three.
Others apart of the suit were Eric Weinberger, a former NFL executive and as stated before, McNabb and Davis. However, they were not working for the NFL Network during the filing of the suit.
Before the charges came about, Donovan was working as a radio host for ESPN. Davis was working for ESPNLA Radio.
In a public statement, ESPN said that as the investigations continue, neither Davis or McNabb will appear on any of their networks.
Cantor alleges that Donovan was sending her text messages with sexual undertones. Davis, on the other hand, was making lewd comments to Cantor.
In 2006, Cantor began working for the NFL Network as a wardrobe stylist. That it is, until her termination in 2016. In her suit, she also claims that age, sexual harassment, and sexual discrimination were the cause her wrongful termination.
