IRVING, Texas -- Receiver Antonio Bryant is keeping his job with the Dallas Cowboys, despite having thrown a sweaty jersey at coach Bill Parcells.

Bryant met Monday with Parcells and team owner Jerry Jones to clear the air between them prior to the start of training camp Friday in Oxnard, Calif.
"He looks to be in good shape, and he wants to be on the team," Jones said. "He's ready to put in the type of commitment that it takes."
Jones did not say what was discussed at the meeting. He added that no punishment had been decided.
Bryant is the team's third receiver, working behind Keyshawn Johnson and Terry Glenn. His role in the offense was at the root of his spat with Parcells, which occurred last month during a minicamp workout at team headquarters.
While Bryant's emotions can sometimes get the most of him, he's also a talented, young player. He's caught 83 passes for 1,283 yards and eight touchdowns his first two seasons.
"He's getting another opportunity," Jones said. "I certainly believe if your heart is in the right place, you should have second chances."
During his time away from Dallas, a few teams had called about trading for him, but the Cowboys apparently wanted a significant draft pick in return.
