BREAKING NFL NEWS: Plaxico Burress accepts plea deal, will spend 2 years in jail

According to the New York Daily News, Plaxico Burress has accepted a plea deal, and will spend two years in jail.

Here is the full story.


Ex-Super Bowl hero Plaxico Burress accepted a plea bargain Thursday that will land the talented but troubled wide receiver behind bars for two years.

The agreement with the Manhattan district attorney came nine months after Burress, 31, shot himself through the thigh with an illegal .40-caliber Glock inside a crowded nightclub.

I am stunned. I never in a million years expected him to do anywhere near this much jail time.
