Professional career[edit]

Calgary Stampeders[edit]

Sinopoli was drafted 29th overall in the fourth round of the 2011 CFL Draft by the Calgary Stampeders. He was later signed to a contract with the Stampeders on May 20, 2011.[5] He dressed in all 18 regular season games for the 2011 season as the third string quarterback as well as dressing in the West Semi-Final. Sinopoli served as the team's holder for placekicks in all of their games as well. Prior to the start of the 2012 regular season, Sinopoli was released by the Stampeders.[6] Following an injury to Calgary's starting quarterback Drew Tate, Sinopoli was re-signed by the Stampeders on July 9, 2012.[7] Thereafter, Sinopoli dressed for ten games as the third-string quarterback before Tate went back on the active roster. Following another injury to Tate, Sinopoli dressed in the West Final and 100th Grey Cup. Due to the entrenched quarterbacks on the depth chart, Sinopoli was moved to wide receiver for the 2013 CFL season, recording his first career reception against the Montreal Alouettes.[8]
