After being fired by the NFL Network following the filing of a sexual harassment lawsuit that accused him and others at the network of workplace misconduct, former Patriots fullback Heath Evans denied the allegations in a statement posted on Twitter.

Evans said, in part, “the allegations made against me are simply not true and . . . I can prove it.” 

He said he first became aware of the allegations last October, before they became public last December.

Evans' full statement:

Evans posted an addendum after retweeting a Pro Football Talk article about his case.

Evans, 39, who played for four NFL teams, including the Patriots (2005-08), was one of several former players-turned NFL Network analysts named in the suit by Jami Cantor, a former wardrobe stylist at the network, in December 2017. The suit names former executive producer Eric Weinberger as well as former players Evans, Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Warren Sapp.
