Sinkfield, 28, originally went undrafted in 2013 out of the University of Northern Iowa. He’s spent time with numerous teams since then but has never cracked an in-season active roster.
Sinkfield has been a member of the Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills the Giants in 2013, twice with the Minnesota Vikings, the New York Jets and the Oakland Raiders.
The veteran has also spent time with the Toronto Argonauts, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League and the Orlando Apollos of the Alliance of American Football. The Apollos waived him in March, prior to the league going defunct.
Sinkfield will now have three preseason games to showcase what he’s made of and impress his coaches. He’ll be doing what he can to make the final 53-man roster, something he’s never done before in the NFL.
In 2013, before going undrafted, Sinkfield unofficially ran a 4.19 40-yard dash at his Pro Day.
The defensive back group for Big Blue will also include veterans Janoris Jenkins, Antoine Bethea, Jabrill Peppers, and Sam Beal, along with rookies DeAndre Baker and Julian Love. It seems the tandem of Jenkins, Baker, Bethea and Peppers could end up being the starting defensive back group.
