The Falcons announced today that they signed tight end Anthony Miller and waived-injured tight end Adam Nissley.
Miller was an undrafted free agent out of California that originally signed with the Denver Broncos in 2012. Miller was primarily a blocking tight end at Cal, catching 64 passes for 774 yards (12.1 avg) and 5 touchdowns during his career. He was a three-year starter that earned honorable mention all-conference honors twice. He was cut by the Broncos at the end of last summer’s training camp and finished the year on the San Diego Chargers practice squad. But he was not retained by the Chargers after the season.
Nissley, also a blocking tight end, was an undrafted free agent out of Central Florida. Nissley injured his knee in the first preseason game and wound up on injured reserve. If he clears waivers, he will once again go on the team’s injured reserve.
