TAMPA, FL (AP) -

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Da'Quan Bowers has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct in connection with his New York City gun arrest.

Bowers entered the plea Thursday in Queens.

He was arrested at LaGuardia Airport on weapon possession charges in February. Authorities say a handgun was found during a search of his carry-on bag as he prepared to board a U.S. Airways flight to Raleigh, N.C.

Bowers played college football for Clemson University in South Carolina. The Buccaneers selected him in the 2011 NFL draft.
