Jalen Ramsey's Super Bowl guarantee apparently didn't sit well with New England Patriots rookie defensive tackle Adam Butler, who offered the Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback a dose of advice Wednesday.

"If you're going to make a statement like that, you better be able to back it up," Butler said, via Rich Cimini of ESPN.

Ramsey, a second-year player, has quickly cemented himself as one of the game's top cornerbacks - and one of its top quotes. He said after the Jags took down the Pittsburgh Steelers in the divisional round that Jacksonville will finish the season by hoisting the Lombardi Trophy at Super Bowl LII in Minnesota.

"It's a bold statement to make," Butler said. "It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out. But like I said, be humble or be humbled. That's all I can really say about that."

Ramsey had an appropriate response to Butler's advice:

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took a more diplomatic approach to questions about Ramsey's confidence level, praising the Florida State product as a game-changer in the secondary.
