Isaiah Demetryst Frey[1] (born April 6, 1990) is an American football cornerback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He played college football for Nevada.

Early life[edit]

Frey was born on April 6, 1990 in Roseville, California. Frey's father Demetryst Cornish is a Walter Payton fan, and named Frey's dogs "Bear" and "Payton". Frey and linebacker Lance Briggs were also from the same area.

"The only person I have an idea about is Lance Briggs just because we’re from the same area. He was a stud back in Sacramento and everybody knows about him. I’ve never met him; I’ve just heard stories about him."

—Frey about Lance Briggs[2]

College career[edit]

Frey played in college as a cornerback for the Nevada Wolf Pack.[1] During his time at Nevada, he recorded 141 tackles, seven interceptions, seven tackles-for-loss, one sack and two forced fumbles in 51 games. During his year as a senior, Frey was named first-team all-WAC after tying for first in the FBS with 21 pass breakups and recording a career-high five interceptions.

Professional career[edit]

Chicago Bears[edit]

Though Frey was projected to be an undrafted free agent,[3] he was picked in the 6th round, 184th overall by the Chicago Bears in the 2012 NFL Draft.[4][5]

"Frey gives the Bears an athletic corner with athleticism and quickness. He is ideally suited to play in a two-deep scheme and will have a chance to make the roster as a sub defender."

—NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks[6]

On May 9, 2012 the Bears signed Frey to a four-year deal.[7][8]

On June 8, Frey, along with the Bears draft class, planted trees at LaFollette Park as part of the team's Save Da Planet program.[9]

In the third game of the preseason against the New York Giants, Frey intercepted a David Carr pass in the end zone with 1:06 in the game to give the Bears a 20-17 victory.[10]

However, he was waived on August 31.[11] He later was placed on the Bears practice squad.[12]

The Bears waived Frey on August 26, 2014.[13] On September 1, 2014, he was signed to the Bears practice squad.[14][15]

He was again released by the Bears on October 7, 2014 and replaced on the team's roster by practice squad member Al Louis-Jean.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers[edit]

Frey signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 15, 2014.[16]
