Professional career[edit]

National Football League (2004–2006)[edit]

Frazier went unselected in the 2004 NFL Draft, but was later signed to the Baltimore Ravens practice squad. In October 2004,[1] he was signed by the Dallas Cowboys, who had numerous cornerbacks injured for lengthy periods of time. While he was with the Cowboys, Frazier started eight regular season games, recording 38 tackles, two interceptions, and in 2004, a punt return average that ranked ninth in the league among rookies.

After the 2005 season, Frazier signed with the Seattle Seahawks where he spent some time on the team's practice squad. He was waived by the team on August 28, 2006.[2] He was then released by the team two days later.[3][4]

In December 2005, Frazier signed a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Storm of the Arena Football League.[5] On October 6, 2006, he was traded from the Tampa Bay Storm to the New Orleans VooDoo.[6] The VooDoo placed Frazier on the Exempted list, due to his playing in the Canadian Football League as well as the Arena Football League. On November 9, 2007, Frazier was traded to the Philadelphia Soul for OL Kelvin Chaisson.[7]
