With their first week of camp wrapping up, the Jaguars have made a move to help their defensive tackle depth. And the player probably have a familiar name to Buccaneers fans, as Sealver Siliga played on Tampa Bay’s defensive line the last two years.

The Jagaurs made the move official prior to their night practice on Friday:

Siliga is a six year veteran, who was actually a reserve on the Patriots Superbowl winning team four years ago.

Siliga was primarily a reserve with the Bucs, but was pressed into duty as a starter as 2017 wore on. He was active for their final five games and saw some limited playing time.

We wrote late in December about how a story emerged that Siliga had left a more than generous tip at a Tampa restaurant for those working on Christmas Eve.

After the Bucs lost to the Panthers in the afternoon and flew back to Tampa, Siliga had Christmas Eve dinner with a group of people at Tampa Applebee’s restaurant And, he wanted to make sure that the staff there knew he was grateful they were working the night before the holiday.

So much so, that Siliga, who’s listed generoursly at 300 lbs., left a massive $1,000 tip ($100 for every employee still working Sunday night) on his under $300 dinner bill.

Siliga made $800,000 veteran minimum last season.

He was not re-signed by the Buccaneers, when they inked defensive tackle free agents Beau Allen of the Eagles and Mitch Unrein of the Bears. The Bucs also drafted Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea in the first round in April, as well.
