The Atlanta Falcons announced a pair of roster moves at the tight end position on Thursday.

The Falcons signed former University of California tight end Anthony Miller and waived/injured tight end Adam Nissley.

Miller was signed by the Denver Broncos last year after becoming an undrafted free agent. He was released late in training camp when the Broncos cut their roster to 75 players. He was signed by the San Diego Chargers to their practice squad in December.

Miller started 34 games during his college career at Cal. He caught 64 passes for 774 yards and five touchdowns.

Nissley was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Falcons last year. He was waived/injured by the Falcons last August and landed on injured reserve. He can be placed on injured reserve again by Atlanta if he clears waivers.
