The San Francisco 49ers announced their 2016 preseason schedule today.

Week 1: vs Houston Texans
Week 2: at Denver Broncos
Week 3: vs Green Bay Packers
Week 4: at San Diego Chargers

These are the opponents that new head coach Chip Kelly will be facing as he works to get his team ready for the regular season. As usual, the 49ers will face the Chargers in preseason. They have faced San Diego in preseason every year since 1987.

The Denver Broncos are once again on the schedule. That's only worth noting because of the current situation surrounding 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Broncos' interest in acquiring him.

The two home games at Levi's Stadium will be against the Houston Texans and new quarterback Brock Osweiler during Week 1 and then two weeks later against the Green Bay Packers.

Dates and times have not yet been set, so fans will have to wait until later in the offseason to see exactly when the 49ers will face each opponent. All 49ers preseason games will be televised locally around the Bay Area on KPIX 5.

Below are the 49ers' 2016 regular season opponents. Dates and times for these games are generally released prior to the NFL Draft.

Home: Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams

Away: Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins, Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams

Initially scheduled for June 4-6, the team plans to eliminate the final day of on-field work, as has been customary in recent years. All eyes will be on the lookout for two players who have been absent during organized team activities (OTAs)—wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and running back Christian McCaffrey. Aiyuk awaits a contract extension that will make him one of the highest-paid receivers in the NFL. The Minnesota Vikings just made wide receiver Justin Jefferson the highest-paid non-quarterback in

The San Francisco 49ers have had success signing their big-name players to contract extensions in recent years, securing deals with George Kittle, Fred Warner, Deebo Samuel, and Nick Bosa.
