Ohhhh. I was thinking of something completely different. It's very unlikely the pedal itself will stick, and the same with the cable. First look at the floor mat to see if the pedal is catching on it. It is also possible to have worn bushings in the throttle body, and the shaft can catch on them. That often doesn't show up when rotating it by hand under the hood because you're tugging on it from a different direction. Instead, push slowly on the pedal until it sticks, then hold it there while a helper pulls on the cable under the hood. That will show if it's the throttle blade that is sticking or it's something else.
