Isaiah Demetryst Frey (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.
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
Frey played in college as a cornerback for the Nevada Wolf Pack. 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.
"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."
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.
