Twitter reminded Malcolm Butler that he asked for Julio Jones four years ago

One of the key matchups in Super Bowl LI is the one between Atlanta's Julio Jones and New England 's Malcolm Butler. Jones has cemented himself as the best receiver in the game, while Butler is an emerging star at cornerback.

With the way the Patriots use Butler, he’s certain to be in coverage against Jones plenty in Houston. And as difficult of a task as that is, Butler had it coming. Well, sort of.

Four years ago, he sent out this tweet, essentially asking to face Jones. Be careful what you wish for, young buck.

Twitter obviously caught wind of Butler’s tweet and reminded him of his brash statement when he was still at West Alabama.
