He played in the position of cornerback and kickoff returner, returning a kick-off 91 yards in a game against the Oakland Raiders, which was the longest return of the Chargers since 2001. He led the team to win against the Houston Texas in 2007, which resulted in his nomination for the AFC Defensive Player of the Week award. The same year, a Minnesota Vikings player Ryan Longwell attempted a 58-yard field goal but he missed the goalposts. Cromartie, being placed in the endzone, managed to return the missed goal 109 yards for a touchdown and set a record as the longest touchdown return in NFL history.

After his last season with the Chargers ended in 2009, the following year Cromartie joined the New York Jets.
