GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Brett Favre is singing the praises of rookie receiver James Jones.

He says Jones has a lot of potential and reminds him of former Packers standout Sterling Sharpe.

Jones, a third-round draft pick from San Jose State, is off to a solid start in training camp.

He had only one dropped pass after seven practices.

Jones says he watched Sharpe growing up.

He says it's an honor to be compared to such a great receiver.
