Roy Williams' $76K heartbreak

Dallas Cowboys football player Roy Williams is nursing a broken heart -- and a $76K lawsuit -- after former Miss Texas Brooke Daniels turned down his marriage proposal, but kept his ring.

Millions of little girls dream about the day they will get engaged -- especially the proposal. So, how would you react if your beloved boyfriend proposed to you through the mail?

Roy Williams' $76K heartbreak

Yes, it actually happened. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams sent former Miss Texas Brooke Daniels -- his girlfriend of one year -- a $76,000 engagement ring and recorded wedding proposal. He also included $5,000 for school and dental bills and a baseball for her brother.

She said no. Ouch.

That's not the worst part, though. Williams later asked Daniels to send the ring back to him -- and she refused.

Now the jilted Williams is suing Daniels to get the ring back. Her father, Michael Daniels, said that he has the ring and will give it back to avoid further legal problems.

So, why did she say no? Well, it might have something to do with her new boyfriend, University of Houston baseball player David Murphy.

Or maybe, just maybe, she was turned off by a through-the-mail proposal. If you can spend $76K on an engagement ring, then you can spring for a plane ticket to propose in person.

Note to Roy Williams: Next time, propose in person. That way you can snatch the ring back if she says no.
