Hi Ryan,
This is not a Spider but a True Bug with six legs and sucking mouthparts.  There is always a danger with common names when a location is given, especially if the range occurs more widely than the name indicates.  This is a Florida Predatory Stink Bug nymph,
Euthyrhynchus floridanus, and though the name might indicate it is only found in Florida, its actual range, according to BugGuide, is from Pennsylvania to Brazil.
