An internally collapsed brake line near the caliper, the flexible line, can let the brake fluid pressure go into the caliper but restrict it from returning and releasing the piston in the caliper.

What causes front brakes to tighten up and not release even after changing calipers and pads?

Brake hoses (the flexable hose from the body to the caliper) are notorious for collapsing internally and acting like a check valve. The master cylinder is able to produce enough pressure to force fluid into the caliper, but then the pressure stays trapped there and causes drag.

When I backup my vehicle rises in the front and the wheel drag

Check the brake caliper on the wheel that drags. Could be locked up. Could be the caliper or the hose going to it. Lift the front off the ground, release the hose from the caliper. If it lets loose, replace the hose, if not replace the caliper. And if the caliper/brakes are good. Then have internal transmission problems.

Why does the brakes drag on occasion?

Have changed the brake hoses? A weak or soft hose will collapse when you release the brakes. This will slow the caliper releasing.

Brake problems

Hello.Find out what side is applying.You can check this by lifting the front of the vehicle,then having someone apply the brakes.When the pedal is released,both wheels should instantly release.If one wheel wont turn after the brakes are relesased,that is the problem side.If the caliper is not frozen,then it will probably be the rubber brake hose that connects the caliper to the steal brake line.
