Former Texans defensive lineman Mario Williams and his former fiancée, Erin Marzouki, have agreed to a settlement in Williams’ lawsuit seeking to recover his 10.04-carat engagement ring from Marzouki.

In a joint statement issued Thursday and signed by both parties, Williams, who had 13 sacks for the Buffalo Bills this season, and Marzouki have reached an amicable settlement in the lawsuit, the terms of which are confidential.

“Mr. Williams apologizes for initiating the lawsuit,” the statement said. “Ms. Marzouki did not deserve the media backlash she received as a result of this lawsuit, because it in no way describes her good character. Mr. Williams believes that Ms. Marzouki is a great person and he regrets how their engagement ended.”
