Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams didn't get the girl after making an usual wedding proposal -- but at least he got the ring back.

Williams and his ex-girlfriend, a former Miss Texas, settled a dispute Thursday regarding a $76,000 engagement ring, ESPN Dallas reported.

Williams sent Brooke Daniels a package in February that included the ring and a taped marriage proposal.

Daniels rejected Williams' proposal but refused to return the ring, prompting him to file a civil suit against her June 30.

A court hearing was to take place Friday in Odessa, Tex., but was cancelled when the two settled.

Neither Williams nor his lawyer responded to messages seeking comment.

Before filing the civil suit, Williams had tried to regain the ring but was told by Daniels that it was lost.

Williams then filed an insurance claim on the ring, but an investigation determined that Daniels' father had it.

Michael Daniels also was named in the suit.
