Two guns and the clothes Plaxico Burress was wearing when he accidently shot himself last month were found by authorities in a search of his home, multiple media outlets in New York reported on Tuesday.

A nine-millimeter handgun and a loaded rifle were discovered, according to the reports. A source told the New York Post that no permits were found for the weapons.

The New York Giants wide receiver is still serving a team suspension for shooting himself Nov. 29 in a nightclub with an illegally carried handgun. Burress shot himself at the Latin Quarter when he accidentally pulled the trigger on the .40-caliber Glock that was in his pants after fumbling a drink.

Teammate Antonio Pierce took the Burress to New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center for treatment.

Burress pleaded not guilty on weapons charges and was released on $100,000 bail. He is due back in court March 31.

He was placed on the team's suspended/non-football injury list, and the NFL Players Association filed a grievance.

Just a side note: Does it seem like the Players Association ALWAYS files a grievance? No matter what the circumstance? Even for idiots like PacMan and Chris Henry?
