Saints giving Duron Carter, John Beck, Brian Schaefering a look

Veteran quarterback John Beck will participate in the Saints’ weekend rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, according to a roster released by the Saints on Thursday.

The 31-year-old Beck had a stint with the Texans in 2012 but did not appear in a regular-season game. Houston released him in October.

In addition to starter Drew Brees, the Saints have veteran reserve passers Seneca Wallace and Luke McCown and undrafted rookie Ryan Griffin under contract. Griffin, a Tulane product, will also take part in the minicamp that runs Friday through Sunday.

Rookie wide receiver Duron Carter, who tried out for the Vikings last weekend, is also slated to try out for the Saints. Duron Carter is the son of Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter.

Seventy players are slated to take part in the weekend workouts, the Saints said. There will be two practices on Friday and Saturday and one on Sunday.

Other veterans trying out for the Saints this weekend include defensive lineman Brian Schaefering, who played for now-Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in Cleveland and Dallas; and offensive lineman Quinn Ojinnaka, who made five starts at left guard for St. Louis last season.

    Schaefering is a beast. Loved him in cleveland always gave BigBen a hard time. Rob Ryan knows him well.

    I am a Saints fan. I would love to see the Saints sign Tebow. He would be great learning under Bree’s, another guy they said would never make it.

    QB trio will be Brees, Wallace, Griffin

    As long as they’d know their roles and maybe contribute elsewhere sporadically, I’d be cool with the Saints taking Tebow, JaMarucs or even VY as a backup QB.

    Please stop with all the tebow nonsense!
    We dont need a untalented tailback with imaginary friends!
    If Brees goes down…we go down!
