One day after suspending three on-air personalities over sexual harassment allegations, the vice president and executive editor of NFL Media was furiously covering his tracks on Twitter, deleting messages sent to escorts and porn stars, according to Deadspin.

Finally, possibly after realizing that the task was too large to complete, Dave Eaton simply deleted his entire Twitter account.

The tweets Eaton was sending ranged from the sexually explicit to the totally mundane, as it appeared he was often trying to spark up conversation with these women, who many times never responded.

And there were many of them. Some of the tweets go back as far as 2013.

Sometimes, Eaton just wanted to talk about some of his favorite books, as he did with @EmilyHunterXO, a since-deleted account that had a topless woman as the profile picture.

“A gent recommended Alan Furst’s Night Soldiers book series,” Hunter wrote on April 21, 2015. “Wow. What a page turner. One down twelve to go.”

“They are great reads,” Eaton replied. “Pay attention to the various characters — a number of them return in the books you’ve not yet read.”

Screenshots of other, less innocent tweet conversations are on Deadspin, although some may find them distasteful or offensive.

With a pending lawsuit filed by former NFL Network stylist Jami Cantor making waves through the NFL Media company, Eaton’s urgent scrubbing of his social media activity looks like a desperate attempt to protect himself.

While his online preferences don’t mean Eaton was himself engaged in any inappropriate sexual behavior, it certainly doesn’t help the company’s image.

Deadspin reported that former NFL Network employees said Eaton’s Twitter activity was well-known and discussed among employees for “quite some time.”
