Ex-Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress agreed to a two year prison term today in New
He could get out in twenty months with good behavior.
Burress did not have a license for the gun he carried into a New York night club when
he accidentally shot himself in the leg.
The charges he faced could have landed him in jail for at least three and a half years.
Burress hopes to resume his career in the NFL when he gets out.
I think that career may be over because he will have missed too much playing time
by then and Burress is already in his thirties.
He has a lot of talent but his actions far too often got in the way of that talent.
What a shame.
