PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles kicked off another round off OTAs in South Philadelphia on Monday.

The defensive players are happy to be having the workouts after needing a crash course on Juan Castillo’s system in his firt year as defensive coordinator.  Second year cornerback Curtis Marsh said he can see the difference from last year. “I think it’s great,”  Marsh said.  “I think everybody knows what they are doing and what to look for in the meetings.  When we come out here, they know what they have to get better at.”

Defensive end Trent Cole says the veterans know they have to be leaders. “We’ve got to set the line as far as how things are run here,” Cole said.  “As vets, we set that tone.  We keep doing the same thing since I’ve been here.”

Cole is also excited about the newcomers on defense. “We’re glad to have these new additions,” said Cole.  “We have guys like Fletcher Cox and these guys look really good out here.  All around, it’s looking good out here so far.”

“[Demeco Ryans] is a new addition and it always feels like it’s different with a new guy. He’s a big linebacker and we’re looking forward to him helping us out and getting it done.”

The Eagles will have more OTAs on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
