Former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress pleaded guilty to felony weapons charges on Thursday morning and received a two-year prison sentence.

The charges stem from an incident in November of 2008 when he accidentally shot himself with his own gun at a nightclub.

The ex-wide receiver pleaded guilty Thursday morning to one count of attempted criminal possession of a weapon, a lesser charge than he initially faced. Under a plea agreement, he agreed to a two-year prison sentence and two years of supervised release.
Burress was indicted earlier this month on two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of reckless endangerment. He faced a minimum sentence of 3 1/2 years if convicted at a trial.


Burress' sentencing is set for Sept. 22.

Burress’ former team the New York Giants is currently listed at 11/1 to win Super Bowl XLIV and 4/1 to win the NFC Championship according to oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com.
