A former NFL Films worker has sued the company, claiming she was sexually harassed by multiple supervisors in her almost 20 years at the NFL’s in-house documentary producer.
According to NJ.com , Nadia Axakowsky filed a sexual harassment lawsuit last week in federal court in Camden, N.J. She worked at the New Jersey-based company from 1997 until her employment was terminated in 2016.
Henry signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Western Kentucky in 2015, but was released during final cuts. He then signed with the Broncos and appeared in two games that season, but did not record a catch. After the Broncos released him, he re-signed with the Packers in 2016 before suffering a hand injury in the preseason that landed him on injured reserve.
Later that fall, Henry signed with the Ravens practice squad. But after experiencing severe shoulder pain, an MRI discovered a growth in his chest.
Henry died with his wife, Madison, and other family members by his side. In a Facebook post, his family wrote, “We are so proud of Mitchell’s fight with this terrible disease, proud of how he lived his life for the past 24 years, but most of all proud of his faith and acceptance of Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.”
“We were very saddened to learn of the passing of Mitchell Henry,” Packers general manager Ted Thompson said in a statement (via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). “During his time with the Packers, he quickly became a beloved member of our family and made a terrific impression on everyone in our organization. We were fortunate to have had him in our lives. On behalf of the Packers family, we offer our condolences to Mitchell’s wife, Madison, and his family and friends.”
