Is this a wolf spider

Is this a wolf spider, I can't tell, I've seen a few of them around the house in window corners, but I just want to be sure, I know the pictures aren't clear, but that's the best I can get, also I think a saw a brown recluse in a window corner as well, as long as I don't bother it, it won't bother me, right? And do they leave there webs at all?
