IRVING, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant has agreed to a year of anger management counseling as part of a deal that could lead to dismissal of a family violence charge over a dispute with his mother.

Attorney Royce West said Wednesday that Bryant was already attending anger management sessions, and he said the Dallas County district attorney's office would dismiss the charge if Bryant stays out of trouble for a year.

Bryant was arrested in July in suburban Dallas after he allegedly hit his mother, Angela Bryant, in the face with a ball cap. A police affidavit says he also grabbed his mother by her T-shirt. Bryant's mother filed an affidavit asking prosecutors not to file charges.

West says the family considers the matter settled.
