Professional Experience: Zendejas was selected in the 1985 USFL Territorial Draft by the Arizona Outlaws of the United States Football League. On January 23, 1985, he was signed to a contract. He made 72% (24-33) of his field goals and 87% (36-41) of his extra points as a rookie. In 1986, the team folded along with the rest of the league. In 1986, he was signed by the Minnesota Vikings, who were looking for a replacement for the recently retired Jan Stenerud.[4] On August 21, he was released after losing the kicking competition against Chuck Nelson. In 1987, he was signed by the Dallas Cowboys, who were looking for a replacement for Rafael Septién. On September 1, he was waived after losing the kicking competition to Roger Ruzek. After the players went on a strike on the third week of the season, those contests were canceled (reducing the 16 game season to 15) and the NFL decided that the games would be played with replacement players. Zendejas was re-signed to be a part of the Cowboys replacement team, that was given the mock name "Rhinestone Cowboys" by the media. He played in two games, where he made 3 out of 4 field goals and all 10 extra point attempts, including a team season-long 50-yarder against the Philadelphia Eagles. On October 27, he was placed on the injured reserve list with an ankle injury and released 3 weeks later. On July 22, 1988, he was re-signed by the Cowboys who wanted protect themselves in case Ruzek's contract holdout extended into the regular season. Zendejas, who made a 47-yard field goal but missed two 49-yarders in his tenure, was released when Ruzek rejoined the team on September 13. On September 27, 1988, he was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles after Dean Dorsey and Dale Dawson struggled in the first four games of the year.[6] In the twelfth game against the New York Giants, he had a field goal blocked with 8:50 left in overtime, that was returned by teammate Clyde Simmons for a 15-yard game winning touchdown. He was a part of the playoff game against the Chicago Bears famously known as the "Fog Bowl", where he made all of the Eagles' points (4 field goals) in the 12–20 loss. In 1989, he made four field goals against the San Francisco 49ers. On October 30, he was released after he missed four of seven field-goal attempts, including a 41-yarder in the Eagles' 28–24 win against the Denver Broncos. Steve DeLine was signed to take his place. On November 7, 1989, he was signed by the Dallas Cowboys to replace a struggling Ruzek. On November 22, Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson alleged that Eagles head coach Buddy Ryan had taken out a "bounty" on two Cowboys players—then-current Dallas (and former Philadelphia) placekicker Zendejas and quarterback Troy Aikman in a game dubbed "Bounty Bowl" played on Thanksgiving Day at Texas Stadium.[9][10] Zendejas was targeted by linebacker Jessie Small on the second-half kickoff, where Zendejas was penalized on the play for a low block. He later reported to the media that he taped a telephone conversation with Eagles special teams coach Al Roberts without telling Roberts that would prove the accusation. After a two-week investigation, the league office issued a statement that they found the Eagles innocent of all charges. Zendejas was released on August 26, 1990, after losing a kicking competition against Ken Willis. He also played for the Arena Football League's Arizona Rattlers from 1992 to 1995. He was a part of the ArenaBowl VIII championship team in 1994. He is the only kicker in Rattlers history to drop-kick extra points for two points. Zendejas finished his career with the Birmingham Barracudas of the Canadian Football League, where he kicked for 144 points in a single season in 1995.niversity.

He finished his college career making 81 out of 108 field goals (75%) and 137 out of 138 extra points (99.3%). He set the then-NCAA Division I career scoring record of 368 points, and most of the school's kicking records. In 1995, he was inducted into the Arizona State University Sports Hall of Fame.
