I sounds like your "seized caliper" actually had a rock stuck in it.  Seen
it many times on many different cars.  Back up, and the rock falls out.  A
caliper that is well and truly seized has to come off the car and be
cleaned up.  New pistons may be needed.  I had a Lotus caliper seized so
badly it went to parts heaven, as no power at my disposal could get the
piston to move.  Stainless pistons help eliminate such problems.
