Brakes rubbing rim 96 3.0 SE???

Hi. First timer here. After finally getting my 1996 SE 3.0 started (it had sat for a year - unrelated problem), I had shifted into reverse to back out the driveway when there was a loud grinding noise. I called my wife out to look while I did it again & she said it was coming from the drivers side front wheel. We switched places and it appears that there is part of the brakes (pads??) actually rubbing against the inside of the rim (stock aluminum). Is this possible? This was NOT happening when the car had first "died". Brakes redone at 44k, car has 72k (yes, low mileage - only used to go to work and back). Thanks so much in advance for any help/thoughts.
