    Suspended NFL player Plaxico Burress has been sentenced to two years behind bars.
     
    TMZ.com reports that it was a teary scene in the New York courtroom when the judge announced that Plaxico would be going to federal prison for two years, the maximum sentence under his plea deal.
     
    Plaxico was then immediately taken into custody, but he was never placed in handcuffs while he was in the courtroom. Before he was hauled off, though, the athlete apologized to his wife and his son, who were also there for sentencing today.
     
    The former New York Giants star had been convicted on charges of illegal possession of a firearm. Those stemmed from a November 2008 incident where he accidently shot himself in the leg outside of a New York City night club with an unlicensed gun.
