If NFL players had AIM away messages

We’re sad to see the announcement that they’re finally shutting down AOL Instant Messenger, better known as AIM to those who loved and lived it.

Not sad as in “a noticeable change in emotion” -- more like sad as in “how can we turn this trending topic into a nostalgic piece of pointless Internet content?”

Naturally, that led us to wonder, hey! what would the AIM away messages look like for current NFL players?

Someone’s got to keep this content train running and it’s about to get really 2002 up in here. Choo choo, baby!
