LR caliper locked up

I have a 2005 Excursion PSD and while driving last night the LR caliper locked up after stopping at a stop sign. It released after pumping the brake pedal a few times and I was able to drive home. When I got home and started to park the car, the caliper locked up enough that the truck wasn't able to be driven in reverse. I had to park it without driving backwards. Took a quick look at the LR brake after parking and the disc looked hazy compared with the other 3 discs. Could this be a caliper that is gone bad?
