Berlin Rebels re-sign wide receiver Jordan Paul

The Berlin Rebels have re-signed one of the finest receivers in Europe as Jordan Paul as agreed to terms with the club for the 2021 season.

Paul had originally signed with the Rebels for the 2020 season before it was canceled due to the pandemic.

The 6’3″, 215 lb Paul, a native of Brooklyn, New York,  finished his college football career at the University of Charleston (NCAA Div. II) after transferring from Gardner Webb (NCAA Div. I). He served both as a quarterback and wide receiver.

After signing with the Allgäu Comets in 2018, Paul proceeded to become one of the most prolific receivers in the German Football League, catching 123 passes for 1,324 yards and 14 touchdowns. A foot injury severely hurt his production in 2019, dropping it down to a mere 216 yards on 25 receptions.

Paul spent part of the 2017 season as quarterback for the Torino Giaguari in Italy.

The Berlin Rebels finished fourth in the GFL North in 2019 and were eliminated in the quarterfinal round of the playoffs by the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns losing to them 45-24.

Jordan Paul explains why he ultimately chose the Rebels:

:I chose the Berlin rebels for the 2021 season because of the good program reputation of being a very competitive, team oriented and possessing the same drive I have toward winning a German Bowl. I have never been to Berlin but I am very excited to play in a city atmosphere that I am sure will remind me of my home in New York City. The coaches and organization staff have been great in the preseason process thus far and I can’t wait to get to work. Go Rebels!”
