ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland and Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant have made amends.

About an hour before their teams played Thursday night, they shook hands and had what looked like a brief, pleasant conversation.

They spoke for less than a minute, with Ireland patting Bryant’s chest when they finished.

“It went well,” Bryant said following Dallas’ 27-25 victory. “We shook each other’s hand, hoped the best for each other and that was it.”

Ireland already had apologized to Bryant for having asked whether his mother was a prostitute during a pre-draft interview. This was their first face-to-face meeting since then.

“It’s not a problem,” he said.

Ireland used to work for the Cowboys and was on the Dallas sideline talking to team vice president Stephen Jones when Bryant jogged past during warmups. The receiver came right over and immediately greeted Ireland.
