A Tampa Bay Bucs player left a $1,000 tip at Applebees this weekend.

One NFL player is apparently in the giving spirit this Christmas. Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Sealver Siliga, despite him team losing on Sunday, was gracious enough to give a sizable gift to the workers at an Applebees on Sunday night.

According to TMZ, which has a photo of the receipt, Siliga asked the restaurant how many employees worked there before leaving the tip on his meal. He left $1,000.

Here's more:

TB defensive tackle Sealver Siliga and some friends hit up Applebee's after losing to the Carolina Panthers earlier in the day -- but despite the L, we're told the guys couldn't have been nicer.

When the bill came (around 10pm), we're told Sealver asked the manager how many people were still working in the restaurant ... because he wanted to tip every person $100 (from the servers to dishwashers).

In total, Siliga dropped a cool $1,000 ... and made everyone's night.

Props to Siliga. Happy holidays to all.
