We're breaking down the top segments from Thursday's edition of the PFW in Progress radio show so you don't miss a thing. Hit play on the podcast above and forward to the segments indicated below to listen.

0:02:00 - The gang was all here today on PFW In Progress with every PFW present and accounted for. The show began with free agency talk as there was a flurry of signings over the past 48 hours. 

0:07:00 - Brock Osweiler has left the Denver Broncos to sign with former Patriots offensive coordinate Bill O'Brien and the Houston Texans. The show discussed if this hurts Denver's chances in the 2016 season. 

0:25:00 - Matt Forte has reportedly signed with the New York Jets and the guys lamented that the Patriots weren't able to come to an agreement with Forte. Most of Patriots Nation felt he would have been a good fit in New England. Where do the Patriots go from here at running back?

0:50:00 - The show discussed the Bill Belichick coaching and general manager tree that is ever expanding. As more coaches and player personnel directors leave New England for better jobs, do these guys target former Patriots? Does this ever growing group of coaches leaving the Patriots add to the competition for players the Patriots have interest in?

1:05:00 - Taxes in the NFL came up as a topic of discussion. Do certain states tax structures make playing in those cities less attractive to potential NFL free agents? 

1:25:00 - The show talked about the Patriots spending habits, or lack there of, in NFL free agency periods. 

1:45:00 - The show concluded with some good wide receiver talk. Why is it that receivers young and old have such a hard time picking up the Patriots offense? Andy Hart provided examples of rookies and veterans alike who were highly sought after, but could not work out in the Patriots offense.
