Hmm, I think this is one of the cellar spiders.

Maybe Artema atlanta? Florida has many Cellar Spiders that I haven’t seen before. The link is to BugGuide’s sightings of Pholcidae in Florida https://bugguide.net/adv_search/bgsearch.php?taxon=9608&location%5B%5D=FL

Michelle, they aren’t dangerous at all. They are excellent at catching insects inside and outside of a building. It’s okay to transfer it to the outdoors if you don’t want it. It would like to be on a building foundation or under something. They are adapted to live near humans.

Yea, thats the name I couldn’t recall.
