I would inspect the bushings that the actual pedal rotates on up above your feet that can fail and then no more smooth rotation point
^^^X2^^^ There is a plastic bushing that is a fairly common failure point where the clutch master cylinder attaches to the pedal. The bushing can break apart and kind of get wedged in the hole. If you find out that's what it is, don't let anyone tell you it isn't available on its own. The bushing is Chrysler part #4643448 and cost less than $5. Here's a picture. It's a really easy fix if that's the problem.
