ColdOmaha.com's Zach Bennett is out in an undisclosed location, but he was generous enough to call into the studio, where Tim Faklis (Sporting News, A Wolf Among Wolves) and Tom Schreier (Cold Omaha) are ready to dive into free agency talk.

The guys begin by explaining why Zach might owe Tom his first-born child, then talk about the biggest moves made this offseason -- and all that mula floating around -- and why the Wolves are smart to play it conservatively.

All that and more on the latest Wolves Wired podcast.
