If the calipers seized you'd be having some difficulty driving the car...... not the engine couldn't pull the car against the brakes, but......

If the only symptom for the calipers sticking is a loose e-brake then I'd first try tensioning the e-brake cable as they can become loose over time.

this happened to me and it was the ebrake cable. had to replace the whole thing.
the caliper was fine, it's just that the cable itself developed some rust where it connects to the caliper(exposed cable outside of the sleeve) and won't retract properly.
