Isaiah Demetryst Frey[1] (born April 6, 1990) is an American football cornerback who is currently a free agent.

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."

— 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]
