I agree with the wolf spider ID. Not certain, but size alone rules out just about everything else.

I'm also inclined to agree. The only other common spider that large or larger are fishing spiders normally found near rivers and streams.

Note to the petitioner: next time photograph your spider topside up. :>)

Actually, that IS the top side of the spider.

The legs were pulled up and I didn't really want to reach down there and straighten them out.

It was still moving a bit.

Here is a site where people try to identify each other's spiders. Although hosted in Australia, people also post from U.S.
