The New York Post has an exclusive report detailing Dan Marino's supposed affair with a CBS employee.

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.

At the time, Donna Savattere was a 35-year-old production assistant at the CBS Sports studio in Manhattan. She and Marino began an affair and, in 2005, Savattere gave birth to Marino's daughter, Chloe. Marino came clean about the affair on Wednesday.

Marino yesterday admitted to his dalliance.

“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.” [NY Post]
