This move should not be all that surprising, especially considering all the legal battles Burress has on his plate.
Burress was charged with two counts of criminal possession of a loaded and unlicensed weapon, following an incident in November in which he shot himself in the thigh at a New York nightclub.

According to the New York Daily News, prosecutors have been unwilling to accept any plea deal that doesn't at least include some jail time.

He was actually released three days after appearing in court for the gun charges.
