After unveiling new uniforms Tuesday, the Seattle Seahawks disclosed their preseason opponents Wednesday. The Seahawks did not provide dates and times for the contests, but said all games will be broadcast live on KCPQ/Q13 FOX, 710 ESPN Radio and 97.3 FM.

The Seahawks will host the Tennessee Titans in Week 1, followed by road games against former AFC West rivals, Denver and Kansas City.

The Seahawks conclude their preseason against the Oakland Raiders either Aug. 29 or 30.

The Titans feature two players with strong local connections. Starting quarterback Matt Hasselbeck guided the Seahawks from 2001-10, leading Seattle to its only Super Bowl appearance following the 2005 season.

Hasselbeck's backup is Jake Locker, the former University of Washington star (2007-10), who went to the Titans in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft. Given that this will be an exhibition game, Locker could see considerable playing time.The Denver game, to be played between Aug. 16-20, will give the Seahawks their first look at Peyton Manning since his signing with the Broncos last month.2012 Seattle Seahawks Preseason ScheduleDate                   Opponent                        TimeAug. 9-13           Tennessee Titans              TBDAug. 16-20         at Denver Broncos           TBDAug. 23-26         at Kansas City Chiefs      TBDAug. 29-30         Oakland Raiders              TBD
