Dates and times for the Seahawks preseason schedule were released Thursday, beginning¬† the four-game exhibition slate with the Tennessee Titans at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11 at CenturyLink Field. This year,¬† Seattle’s preseason contests will be televised by Q13 FOX. The schedule:

Tennessee will bring back Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker to Seattle. Hasselbeck, the Seahawks’ quarterback from 2001-10, signed with the Titans as a free agent following the 2010 season.

Locker, Hasselbeck’s backup, quarterbacked the Washington Huskies from 2007-10, then became the eighth overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Seattle’s Aug. 18 game at Denver will provide the Seahawks with their first look (if he plays) at four-time MVP Peyton Manning as a Bronco, with whom he signed in free agency last month.

The NFL has not released the regular season schedule.
