The Tampa Bay Buccaneers cut tight end Danny Noble today after signing him to the active roster from the practice squad Saturday when they released running back Peyton Hillis, according to a league source.

The 6-foot-5, 248-pound Noble made the roster last season as an undrafted rookie free agent from Toledo.

Noble played in four games before being placed on injured reserve with a hamstring issue.

During the preseason, Noble caught five passes for 43 yards.
