HOUSTON (AP) - Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams has settled a lawsuit he filed against his former fiancee over getting back his $785,000 diamond engagement ring.

In a statement released Thursday, Williams and Erin Marzouki announced they had "reached an amicable agreement" regarding the dispute over the ring. The terms of the agreement were kept confidential.

Williams filed a lawsuit in May, demanding Marzouki return the ring and accusing her of breaking off their engagement last January. Marzouki counter-sued, accusing Williams of the break up.

In the statement, Williams apologized for initiating the lawsuit, calling Marzouki a "great person." Marzouki said she regretted releasing text messages between her and Williams that seemed to indicate how despondent the player was over their breakup.
