Can anyone help me identify this unexpected house guest? It looks beefier than a wolf spider. It reminds me of a tarantula.

Description

Short broad bodies, covered with hair and spines. These spiders actually do not spin a web of any kind, but hunt on the ground, pants and flowers to find their prey. Moment is possible in every motion (back, forward, and sideways).

Originally I posted the picture with the feather and said "I find this situation interesting. There's two crickets and a spider here. I don't know when the tiny cricket appeared (it's above the big cricket, pretty difficult to see in this pic), but that big cricket has been there months and appears to be alive, but it's fairly penned in by the spider's web. I have no idea how it's surviving. Maybe it's not, maybe it's just the wind moving the antennae of a molting or dead cricket...
then I said "Just went out and poked around with a stick. All 3 are alive." when I posted the other picture. I also noted that when I poked the web, the spider ran towards the crickets. To protect them? To be protected? To eat them? Coincidence?
Could this be the same type of spider spotting near a cricket here?https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/4949124

Description from Wikipedia

Spiders (order Araneae) are air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs and chelicerae with fangs that inject venom. They are the largest order of arachnids and rank seventh in total species diversity among all other groups of organisms. Spiders are found worldwide on every continent except for Antarctica, and have become established in nearly every habitat with the exception of air and sea colonization. As of 2008, at least 43,678 spider species, and 109 families have been...
