SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Former San Francisco 49ers standout Bubba Paris has pleaded guilty to failing to file federal income taxes.

The U.S. Department of Justice announced Tuesday that Paris pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor charge of failing to file tax returns in 2006, 2007 and 2008 on a combined income of $182,000. Paris also agreed to pay a $126,530 fine. He faces up to a year in prison when sentenced in February.

The 52-year-old Discovery Bay, Calif., resident didn’t return a phone call or an email message sent to his motivational speaking company.

The University of Michigan product was drafted in the second round of the 1982 NFL draft. He started at left tackle for eight of the nine years he played for San Francisco, which won three Super Bowls during his career.
