Jones reaches out to Cowboys' Bryant, sets up further talks

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones spoke with embattled wide receiver Dez Bryant on Thursday, mainly to set up a longer conversation Friday.

Jones took advantage of a change in lockout rules to chat with Bryant for the first time in weeks. Bryant has made headlines for extensive jewelry purchases that prompted several lawsuits and an incident with a security guard at an upscale mall.

"We talked today," Jones told *The Dallas Morning News*. "I wanted to make sure that he was going to come here tomorrow and, more importantly, to meet with our trainers. But we'll grab some time ... before the draft, and we'll talk about some of those issues."

Jones said he also told Bryant, his first-round draft pick last year, to save some time for the two to meet while he was at team headquarters.
