    ST. PAUL (AP) -Retired Minnesota Vikings lineman Jim Marshall had a felony drug conviction scrubbed from his record Monday by the state Board of Pardons.

    Marshall, who appeared in 282 consecutive games over nearly two decades, won a pardon for his 1991 conviction on a cocaine possession charge, a clean bill of health he sought so he can travel the world without restrictions to work for a nonprofit he co-founded.

    Glad to see the justice system do something right. Hopefully he will have a chance to do some good work for his non profit.
