Roy Williams gets engagement ring back



Posted by Ryan Wilson

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.

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.

Roy Williams suing girlfriend for engagement ring

Posted by Will Brinson

The best rule I can offer to anyone who wants to marry their significant other is this: Know for a fact that when you propose, they'll say yes.

Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams would probably agree with that rule and, since he's currently suing a former girlfriend, would also probably add: "Don't mail the engagement ring when you do propose."

See, according to the Odessa American, Williams is currently suing former 2009 Miss Texas USA Brooke Daniels in order to get a $76,000 engagement ring he sent to her. In the mail.

"I'm not going to talk about it," Williams told ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins on Wednesday. "It's a non-issue."

Well, actually it might be an issue -- Daniels' father Michael claims Williams didn't want the ring back, even after Daniels decided she didn't want to marry him. "He 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," Michael Daniels said, per the OA.

The spiciest part about all this, though, is that apparently Texas law states that if the donor of the ring (perhaps you prefer "the engager"?) is at fault for terminating an engagement, the ring doesn't have to be returned.

In this case, Daniels' decision to terminate the relationship would actually require her to return the ring to Williams.

Of course, that still doesn't mean that, going forward, Williams should ignore my rule about marriage proposals.
