Chances are it is just old parts with worn seals.
If you want to verify the problem is not with the rubber brake hoses being collapsed internally just open the bleeder and see if the piston will retract, if it will not the caliper needs replacement/rebuild.

Ditto...we were having our brakes on my 95 Neon hanging up on the front in stop and go traffic in Nashville on our way to FL for spring break. I thought it was the calipers, which it was, but they were hanging up since the brake lines were collapsing. No troubles after replacing the brake lines....calipers were good.
