According to a report by the New York Post, retired NFL quarterback Dan Marino fathered a love child wih a former CBS production assistant in 2005. He then paid her millions to keep quiet about the child as part of a confidentiality agreement.
The married gridiron great — a pregame analyst for CBS since 2003 who will be doing this Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast — sired a love child with a network underling and then paid her millions to keep quiet, sources have exclusively told The Post.
The ex-Miami Dolphin QB — who has long had an image as one of pro sports’ most squeaky-clean guys — knocked up Donna Savattere, a then-35-year-old production assistant at CBS Sports’ Manhattan studio.
Marino released the following statement on the matter:
“This is a personal and private matter. I take full responsibility both personally and financially for my actions now as I did then,” he told The Post in a written statement. “We mutually agreed to keep our arrangement private to protect all parties involved.”
Marino is married wih six children.
He played his entire NFL career with the Dolphins (1983-1999) and was named to the Pro Bowl nine times.
Marino was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005.
