Sinopoli played high school football at Crestwood Secondary School for the Mustangs in his hometown of Peterborough, Ontario. He was also a former AAA hockey player for the Peterborough Minor Petes of the OMHA's Eastern AAA League. Annually, Sinopoli plays at St. Joseph's High School, Ottawa, for a charity basketball game featuring the Ottawa Gee Gee's football team versus the St. Joseph basketball team to raise money for the St. Joseph team.
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. 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. Following an injury to Calgary's starting quarterback Drew Tate, Sinopoli was re-signed by the Stampeders on July 9, 2012. 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, with his first career reception coming against the Montreal Alouettes. Sinopoli recorded his first CFL touchdown on a 26-yard run in a 10–7 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on July 18, 2014.
On February 10, 2015, he signed a free agent contract with the Ottawa Redblacks. Sinopoli had a break-out season with the Ottawa RedBlacks; playing in all 18 regular season games he was essentially tied with Earnest Jackson as the #3 WR on the roster. Brad Sinopoli finished the regular season with 86 receptions, for 1,035 yards with 3 touchdowns. His successful season was rewarded when he was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Canadian. In 2016, Sinopoli surpassed his 2015 performance by finishing the regular season with 90 receptions, for 1036 with 4 touchdowns (all career highs). He would also go on to win the Dick Suderman Trophy as the Most Valuable Canadian player at the 104th Grey Cup after compiling 6 receptions for 94 yards and 1 touchdown in the Redblacks' upset victory over the Calgary Stampeders.
