It's now offical, the Casper Ghosts minor league baseball team will be moving to Grand Junction, Colorado. Monday night the Grand Junction City Council approved a lease for the team and Spulizio Field. It's a 15-year lease with the option of three-five year extensions. The team will be known as the Grand Junction Rockies and the Monfort Investment Group that owns the team will pay $25,000 of rent annually plus $500 a game. In addition, the owners still have to pay the City of Casper a $200,000 exit fee. The Grand Junction exit fee will be $100,000. Spulizio Field is undergoing $8.3 million of renovations, but still needs another $800,000 of improvements to expand the locker rooms, build a training room and office space for the team. The Rockies will pay $100,000 of that. Ghosts General Manager for the past season Tim Ray will accompany the team to Grand Junction.

The Wyoming Cowboys will have a second bye week to their schedule this week after beating UNLV on Saturday at Memorial Stadium 41-14. Cowboy receiver Chris McNeil was named the Mountain West Conference special teams player of the week. He returned a punt 76 yards for a touchdown, the first time Wyoming has done that since 2004. McNeil also threw a TD pass to quarterback Brett Smith, and also threw a pass for a two-point conversion. The Cowboys are now 4-2 overall and 1-0 in Mountain West play.

The Denver Broncos in their bye week made some news off the field. They traded receiver Brandon Lloyd to the St. Louis Rams for a draft pick next year. Lloyd is in the final year of his contract which is paying him $1.4 million this year which is a bargin considering his productivity. Last year he caught 77 balls for 1448 yards and 11 touchdowns. This year however, 19 catches for 283 yards and no TD's.
