06 Accord Sedan - V6 - 105K miles

Driving home from work last night, pull up to my house after driving 35 minutes. Notice smoke coming from the front right corner of my car. By the time I get out, I couldn't exactly pinpoint where smoke was coming from. My tires need replacing soon, but thought I had at least a few thousand more miles.

Done a little bit of research, and discovered that it could be a frozen caliper? Drove wife's car to work today, and plan on taking a closer look when I get home. Couldn't look last night as I had to leave right away for graduation party, and got home late.

Once I pull off the caliper, how can I tell if it is going bad? Is this common on these accords? If it is the caliper, I will just replace both, and slap on new pads/rotors as well.

Sounds like a dragging brake pad.
