The network also parted ways with Eric Davis.

ESPN contributors Donovan McNabb and Eric Davis are no longer with the network as of Friday, a spokesman confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

The former pro players turned NFL Network personalities were both accused of sexual harassment by a network wardrobe stylist from their time there.

The NFL Network suspended Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans over the same claims on Dec. 11.

Wardrobe stylist Jami Cantor filed a suit against NFL Enterprises in Los Angeles Superior Court in October. Also named in the suit was former NFL Network executive Eric Weinberger, the current head of Bill Simmons' media group The Ringer. Weinberger is on leave indefinitely.

McNabb, known best for his time with the Philadelphia Eagles, appeared on First Take and also participated in ESPN Radio. Davis co-hosted an L.A. ESPN Radio show.

Cantor's suit alleges Faulk groped her breasts and behind and asked her "invasive questions" about her sex life. Weinberger is accused of sending Cantor sexually explicit texts and nude pictures of himself. The suit also alleges that he pressed his crotch against her shoulder and told her to touch it.

Taylor is accused of sending Cantor sexually inappropriate pictures of himself and video of himself masturbating in the shower. The complaint also says McNabb sent Cantor sexually explicit text messages. Davis is accused by Cantor of rubbing his body against her and engaging in lewd talk.
