The Rhein Fire announced the signing of former Leipzig Kings wide receiver Timothy Knuettel to their active roster, for the 2022 season.

“The reason I chose Rhein Fire is because I believe this is a great organization, from staff to players and things are being set up for a trip to Austria in September“, Knuettel commented on why he signed with Rhein Fire.

The 188cm tall and 90kg heavy wide receiver led the European League of Football in touchdown receptions. Knuettel also recorded 701 receiving yards, 55 receptions and 70.1 yards per game in 2021.

Following his first year in the European League of Football, the German wide receiver was selected to be part of the 2021 All-Star team.

Now, one of the best route-runners of the past year will join American wide receiver Nathaniel Robitaille and NFL International Combine attendee Aymeric Nicault to form a dangerous group of pass catchers. Knuettel also reunites with his former Kings teammate and running back Jason Aguemon who signed with Rhein Fire almost two months ago.
