McNabb, Davis Out At ESPN After Allegations From NFL Network Days
ESPN cut ties with Donovan McNabb and Eric Davis following a monthlong investigation into allegations of sexual harassment at another network. Last month, ESPN suspended the two former NFLers from appearing on air after they were named in a lawsuit filed by a wardrobe stylist at NFL Net. In the lawsuit, McNabb was accused of sending inappropriate text messages, while Davis was accused of rubbing his body against the woman and engaging in lewd talk.
Because of revelations in the lawsuit, NFL Net suspended former players Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans, pending its own investigation. Bill Simmons Media Group President Eric Weinberger, who runs The Ringer, also was suspended for allegations during his time as an NFL Net exec producer. McNabb had appeared on ESPN shows like “First Take” and has co-hosted a show for ESPN Radio on weekends during the NFL season. Davis co-hosted an ESPN L.A. Radio show with Marcellus Wiley and Kelvin Washington.
