Football Player Roy Williams Mails Ring And Wants It Back

These days, finding a genuine, handwritten letter in your mailbox is romantic—but what about an engagement ring?

In a Valentine’s Day care package to his girlfriend of nearly a year, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams mailed a taped marriage proposal, $5,000 for school and dental bills, a signed baseball for her brother and a ring worth $76,000.

The snail mail proposal did not woo his sweetie, 2009 Miss Texas USA Brooke Daniels; she promptly turned him down. But she kept the ring.

When Williams asked for the ring back, Daniels refused to return it, saying she had lost it. The football player then filed a lawsuit.

Daniels’ father, Michael Daniels, has since admitted that he has the ring and plans to return it to avoid further legal hassle.
