PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles continued with their OTAs Tuesday in South Philadelphia.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was back at practice after missing Monday’s session.  The team said weather forced a delay in his flight back to Philadelphia.  Wide receiver Jason Avant said Rodgers-Cromartie’s speed is evident, and the key to his success is putting him in the right position.”If you take a fish and put him on land, he doesn’t work well,” said Avant.  “He’s an outside guy and he’s always been fast.  He’s accustomed to being out there.”

Rodgers-Cromartie is back outside with the departure of Asante Samuel, and is being helped along by Nnamdi Asomugha.  “I think [Asomugha’s] little more vocal this year as far as talking to me and helping me understand some of the things that I might not know. He’s trying to be a leader,” Rodgers-Cromartie said.

Brent Celek is happy to be at the OTAs after a pair of off-season surgeries.  Celek believes he’ll be ready to go full speed at training camp next month, but is being cautious throughout the OTAs. “It’s hard,” Celek said.  “But I know what’s best for me and what’s best for the team is for me to be smart about it.”

The OTAs continue today and Thursday.
