Mazda Ranger rear end locked up

98 Mazda B4000 (ranger) suddenly won't leave the driveway after being parked for a few days. Put each of the front tires up with the jack and each could move. Rear driver side can move reluctantly up on the jack and will spinn out when I try to back out. When I tried to raise the rear passenger side, truck started to roll. Any ideas - can the brakes lock up? Parking brake be stuck (pedal release seems to be working properly)? Or am I likely looking at a catastrophic problem with the transmission or axel?

probably a stuck brake may be due to weak or broken spring or frozen emergency brake cable sometimes you can jar it loose by tapping on the the brake backing plate with a hammer assuming it has rear drum brakes.
