Stamps sign picks Sinopoli, Turner and Parker


CALGARY — The Calgary Stampeders have signed draft picks Anthony Parker, Junior Turner and Brad Sinopoli.

The Stampeders traded up to take Calgary Dinos receiver Parker third overall in the CFL Canadian college draft earlier this month.

Turner, a defensive lineman with Bishop’s University, was picked ninth overall while Ottawa quarterback Sinopoli was taken 29th overall.

Sinopoli, from Peterborough, Ont., won the Hec Crighton Award as the top player in Canadian university football last season.

“It’s great to officially welcome Anthony, Junior and Brad to the Stampeders,” said Stampeders head coach and GM John Hufnagel in a statement Friday.

“These three signings were priorities and I’m glad all three have been done in time for training camp.”
