    Dallas _ In effort to get the ugly incident in July behind him, Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant entered a conditional dismissal agreement with the Dallas County District Attorney’s office in an effort to resolve the misdemeanor family charge involving his mother, Angela Bryant.

    According to his attorney Royce West, Bryant will undergo a year of anger management counseling and must stay out of trouble for a year. If he does all that, the original charges will be dropped, per the agreement with the district attorney.

    The key to the agreement, according to West, is that Bryant continues to maintain his innocence and never had to enter a plea.

    According to NFL spokesman Greg Aeillo, Bryant’s case will be reviewed by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell under the league's personal conduct policy. He could face further discipline from the NFL.

    West said he has focused mainly on the district attorney and has yet to address how the league would handle it. But he doesn’t expect any additional discipline.

    If they didn't even make him plea, there must have been very little case to make.

    Roger Goodell is the worst thing that ever happened to the NFL.

    This is common in domestic violence cases. I have seen it many times in cases more clear cut. Just saying.....
