Cut from practice squad

The Eagles released Sinnett from their practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: As expected, Sinnett lost the backup competition to veteran Gardner Minshew, but he rejoined the Eagles on a practice squad deal. However, the 25-year-old now finds himself as a free agent heading into Week 1 of the 2022 season. Sinnett has yet to make his regular-season NFL debut.

Sticks around on practice squad

The Eagles signed Sinnett to the practice squad Wednesday, Sage Hurley of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Sinnett competed with veteran Gardner Minshew for Philadelphia's backup quarterback spot this preseason, but he was ultimately let go as part of the team's final roster cuts Tuesday. Now on the practice squad, the 25-year-old should serve as the team's next best option at quarterback behind Minshew and Ian Book, who was claimed by the Eagles on Wednesday.

Waived by Philly

The Eagles waived Sinnett on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Sinnett, an undrafted quarterback out of San Diego, lost the training camp battle for the backup quarterback gig to Gardner Minshew. However, per Pelissero, Sinnett is a candidate to join the Eagles' practice squad if he clears waivers.

Active Sunday

Sinnett will serve as Garden Minshew's backup Sunday against the Jets, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Sinnett went undrafted out of San Diego and previously spent time with the Dolphins this season. He served as Jacoby Brissett's backup while Tua Tagovailoa was out with a rib injury, but he never saw the field. With Jalen Hurts (ankle) out Sunday Sinnett will move into a similar role, likely only to see snaps if Minshew were to be injured.

Inactive Sunday

Sinnett (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Chargers, Tim McManus of reports.

Analysis: Sinnett was claimed by the Eagles after they traded Joe Flacco to the Jets. However, the 24-year-old will be inactive Sunday, as Philadelphia will roll with its usual starter Jalen Hurts, and Gardner Minshew will act as the only active backup.

Claimed by Philadelphia

Sinnett was claimed by the Eagles Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Waived by Miami

Sinnett was waived by the Dolphins on Saturday.

Analysis: Sinnett was a healthy scratch for last week's loss to the Jaguars, and he'll now lose his spot on the roster. The 24-year-old hasn't yet made an appearance in the NFL.

Dropped to No. 3 role

Sinnett (coach's decision) is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars in London, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: After backing up Jacoby Brissett in each of the Dolphins' last three games, Sinnett will head back to the No. 3 role at quarterback with Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) starting Sunday in his first game back from injured reserve. Sinnett could be a candidate to be dropped from the 53-man roster later in the season if injuries should decimate the Dolphins' depth at other positions.

Backup for Sunday

Sinnett was promoted to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Sinnett suddenly enters Sunday's game in a pivotal backup role after Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) was placed on injured reserve. Veteran castoff Jacoby Brissett struggled in his 2021 debut last week, but it's hard to imagine a scenario where Sinnett would play over Brissett unless the latter succumbs to some sort of injury.

Nabs practice squad spot

The Dolphins signed Sinnett to the practice squad Wednesday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Waived by Miami

Sinnett was waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Sinnett spent most of last season on Miami's practice squad and was unable to make the initial 53-man roster again this year. The Dolphins hope to bring him back to the practice squad once again, but he'll first need to pass through waivers unclaimed.

Signs futures deal

Sinnett signed a reserve/future contract with the Dolphins on Tuesday.

Analysis: The rookie UDFA was elevated from the practice squad by Miami for two games this season but never saw game action. Sinnett will work through the Dolphins' offseason program and attempt to earn the backup job in 2021.

Jan 5, 2021 7:34 PM EST

Back to practice squad

Backup duties on tap

Sinnett will serve as the Dolphins' backup quarterback in Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: Sinnett was promoted from the practice squad Saturday. He'll slot in as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tua Tagovailoa because Jake Rudock is a healthy scratch.

Jan 3, 2021 9:13 AM EST

Promoted to active roster

Sinnett was signed to the Dolphins' active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Sinnett is slated to provide depth at quarterback Sunday against the Bills after Ryan Fitzpatrick landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list this week. Sinnett won't be the primary backup, however, with Jake Rudock active behind Tua Tagovailoa.

Slides down to practice squad

Sinnett reverted to the Dolphins' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Sinnett was pulled up from the practice squad Saturday afternoon, with Tua Tagovailoa (thumb) being listed as doubtful at the time. The San Diego product was ultimately not needed in relief, as Ryan Fitzpatrick was under center throughout a 20-3 victory over the Jets.

Nov 30, 2020 4:27 PM EST

Bumps to active roster

The Dolphins elevated Sinnett to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: With Tua Tagovailoa (thumb) listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets, Sinnett was called up to serve as the backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick. An undrafted rookie out of San Diego, Sinnett will suit up for his first NFL game Sunday.

Nov 28, 2020 2:25 PM EST

Officially on practice squad

The Buccaneers signed Sinnett to the practice squad Sunday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The Buccaneers were hoping Sinnett would clear waivers so they could place him on the practice squad, as they gave him a $152,000 signing bonus in April. Sinnett will look to learn a few things from Tom Brady at practice this season.

Sep 9, 2020 7:13 PM EST

Likely heading to practice squad

The Buccaneers waived Sinnett on Friday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The undrafted free agent out of San Diego intended to develop Sinnett when they signed him, giving him $152,000 in guaranteed money, and it looks like they'll follow through if he clears waivers. Sinnett only started one year in college but was quite impressive, throwing for 3,528 yards, 32 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He'll look to pick up a few tips from Tom Brady.
