Huge 8" Buff tan cap, dark brown gills?

At first I thought I spotted a Giant Puffball in the tall grass; when I got there I found 4 of these Huge 8" capped mysteries. The cap is the same color as natural tanned buckskin and feels like leather. The gills are a velvety dark brown.
I can't find it in my books, but I'm guessing it's NOT a good one?

Try genus Agaricus. Maybe Agaricus arvensis. People eat them but I never have. Lawn (or grass) seems necessary.
