Comments & ID Thoughts

Hey. I found this site when I was trying to look up what this guy may be. I was on patrol in the Lower Parking Garage of the building I work at, and this dude kinda wandered right over to me. I don't normally mind spiders, but given that this dude is brown and I live in Texas, I don't wanna take any chances. Can anyone help me identify what kind this is? I've never seen one of these before.
