Giant moves

While the Giants continued to wait for Plaxico Burress to visit, which is scheduled to happen on Wednesday, the team made three moves to bolster its roster.

First, the team inked veteran backup quarterback Jim Miller to a one-year deal. Miller replaced Kurt Warner as Eli Manning's backup. The Dolphins' Jay Fiedler had visited Giants Stadium last week and appeared to be the favorite to land the job.

But Miller, 34, met with the team over the weekend and the two sides came to terms. Miller, who led the Bears to a 13-3 record in 2001, hasn't attempted a pass in more than two seasons. Warner signed a one-year deal with the Cardinals on Sunday.

New York then landed the kicker they wanted, signing Jay Feely to a three-year deal. Feely, 28, spent his first four seasons with Atlanta, making 77 percent of his field-goal attempts. Last year, he had career-lows in field goals (18) and attempts (23).

Feely replaces Steve Christie, who was 22-for-28 last year, including nine straight conversions to close the season.

Big Blue also kept one of its own, agreeing to a two-year deal with reserve running back Mike Cloud.
