Former Cowboys great Michael Irvin is the latest NFL Network employee and former player to be accused of sexual harassment at the league-owned network.
In a first-person account published on Sports Illustrated, Erin McParland, a woman who worked under former NFL Network wardrobe stylist Jami Cantor, alleged former NFL player Eric Davis and Irvin made unwanted advancements on her, similar to the actions alleged in Cantor’s wrongful termination lawsuit.
The majority of McParland’s allegations published Thursday were made against Davis, who allegedly propositioning her for sex, and engaged in excessive hugs when he would press his genitals into her leg. Davis was named in Cantor’s wrongful termination lawsuit along with Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans. She also accused former network analysts and ex-NFL players Donovan McNabb and Warren Sapp of misconduct.
McNabb and Davis were suspended last Tuesday by ESPN, their current employer, pending an investigation into Cantor’s claims.
It has been 10 weeks since Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was injured on a hit from Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr, which resulted in a broken collarbone for Rodgers, but that is not stopping Packers fans from continuing to send hateful messages to Barr.
That play in Week 6 became one of the biggest stories around the NFL, and the Packers were certainly hurting without their quarterback as they went 3-4 in the seven games that Rodgers missed.
The Packers put Rodgers on the injured reserve list earlier this week, and even though several weeks have passed since the hit, the hate mail doesn’t come as a surprise to Barr.
“It’s Aaron Rodgers,” Barr said. “It’s one of the faces of the NFL. It’s going to happen.”
But I’m not sure it wouldn’t have been greater, at least for him personally, the next year.lieu of losing Lopez for nothing – not unlike the Atlanta Hawks’ situation with Al Horford last and their current problem with Millsap – Marks would do well to move the center with eye towards the future, but only for the right price.They already can’t hit a quarterback near the head, which leaves the midsection as pretty much the only legal hitting area.Hiring a Business Speaker like Manning is not a hard process.Sorry, man, this is going nowhere.GRADE: B+ CLEVELAND BROWNS: Emmanuel Ogbah, defensive end outside linebacker.
