Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The problem could be quite a few things including the calipers, hoses, possibly a master cylinder issue, but the most common cause of rear brake drag on these is the pads hanging up in their slides.

It's also possible that the problem could be a broken emergency brake shoe.

Is the problem intermittent or are the wheels still locked now?
