NFL Players Who Got Lucky In Love


Rodney Peete did not have a spectacular career in the NFL, but he stayed on for 16 seasons, mostly as a back-up. He married actress Holly Robinson in 1995, and the couple has four children together. It’s fantastic to see marriages in Hollywood last for more than 20 years. The stress and struggle of the spotlight can undoubtedly put a damper on things. To their credit, Rodney and Holly overcame it all.

Now, Rodney has become one of the hosts of the Fox Sports Network show called The Best Damn Sports Show Period, with other retired professional athletes like John Salley, Chris Rose, and Rob Dibble. Rodney Peete’s HollyRod Foundation was founded in 1997 to support families affected by Parkinson’s disease. A few years later, when their son Rodney Jr. was diagnosed with autism, the family had a similar situation. This extends the mission of the foundation to today.
