Roy Williams gets engagement ring back

We're still without football, but it's been a busy week nonetheless for Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams.

We wrote Tuesday that Dallas could end up releasing Williams to save a few bucks and to give Dez Bryant more playing time. And Wednesday, our CBSSports.com colleague Will Brinson pointed out that Williams was suing his girlfriend, 2009 Miss Texas USA Brooke Daniels. Williams sent Daniels a $76,000 engagement ring through the mail, and, understandably, he wanted it back when she said "thanks but no thanks" to his marriage proposal.

Daniels' father told the Odessa American that "[Williams] said to her, 'I'm not like a lot of people, I don't want the ring back. You'll eventually come back to me,' and she didn't." Apparently, Williams had a change of heart, and he was willing to file a lawsuit to get the ring back.

Cowboys Offseason

Well, there's a happy ending of sorts.

Still no wedding bells in the future, but TMZ reports that the ring was returned to Williams' attorney Wednesday. There are several lessons to be learned here. First, as Brinson wrote yesterday, "Know for a fact that when you propose, (your ladyfriend will) say yes." And assuming she's up for it, whatever you do, DO NOT send the engagement ring via the United States Postal Service. In addition to it possibly getting lost, we're guessing women, in general, don't find postal-mail proposals particularly romantic.

Cut Roy a deal.


This gal kind of looks like Tony Romo!

Maybe he was just trying to cozy up for the upcoming, and for Cowboys fans,  disappointing season!

As a Cowboy fan; I gotta admit this is freaking hilarious!!!!!

When we signed Roy, I thought he was gonna do some real nice work for us... boy was I wrong!

This guy has been huge JOKE since he stepped into a Cowboy uniform.

Asking a chick to marry you by sending the engagement ring thru the mail..... are u serious?????

Maybe the Cowboys should try to get some of that $45 million back from this guy since he's turning out to be a better comedian than NFL WR.

A guarantee

The first place that ring went after it hit his hands was right to the ground. Ruled incomplete, dropped pass. My guess for her next move?  -- Porn/centerfold. Either way she'll have more passes thrown at her than R-dub.
