We identified 97 strong pulsars from the NRAO VLA Sky Survey (NVSS) at 1.4 GHz north of Dec(J2000) $=-40\hbox{$^\circ$}$. The total flux density, linear polarization intensity and polarization angle (PA) of all pulsars are extracted from the NVSS catalog. The well-calibrated PA measurement of 5 pulsars can be used for absolute PA calibrations in other observations. Comparing the source positions with those in the pulsar catalog, we got the first measurement of the proper motion upper limit of PSR B0031-07, which is $\mu_{\alpha}\cos\delta = -102\pm74$ mas yr-1 and $\mu_{\delta} = -105\pm78$ mas yr-1.

Key words: pulsars: general -- polarization -- surveys
