In a game vs. the Minnesota Vikings on October 11, Cromartie was covering Randy Moss when he caught Brett Favre's 500th touchdown pass.

On January 12, 2011, Cromartie made headlines when he verbally attacked Tom Brady. When asked if he had ever seen Brady point to the opposing sideline after scoring a touchdown, Cromartie launched into a profanity laced tirade, saying that he hated the Patriot's quarterback and referred to Brady as an asshole.

According to court records, Cromartie failed to appear in court on two separate occasions in reference to moving violations and his driver license status.
