    First, I guess these are old MPH, not Root.
    Then, I believe, you've been using them for quite time, so pistons may be dirty, that's why they stuck. Take brake off the bike, take pads out of calipers, clean everything inside caliper.
    Then, barrel adjustment stucks as well, sometimes, especially when you set it in extremes positions. Turn it in or out a little bit.
    And the last thing... your brakes mayb need rebleeding.
