The last time NFL fans saw Plaxico Burress in a pressure situation, he had just caught a 13-yard pass from Eli Manning in Super Bowl XLII, giving the New York Giants a 17-14 upset win over the New England Patriots.

File that memory away, because it could be the last time you ever see him on a football field.

Inside a New York City courthouse, Newsday sources have confirmed that the former Giants receiver has pled guilty to second-degree weapons charges stemming from a nightclub incident last winter, where he shot himself in the leg.

Burress will serve a two-year prison sentence.

The deal also includes a two-year probationary period.

Burress, 32, was cut by the Giants in April after being suspended for the rest of the 2008 season. 

Sentencing will take place on Sept. 22.
