Interesting Winged Bug

It rained crazily all weekend and I found this interesting insect hiding under our covered deck. It laid there quietly while I wandered around close to it, but then flew away when I accidently dropped a gardening clog. It was massive close to 2.5 inches long.
It's more than likely a cicada which have started singing in the trees lately.
It was playing dead for quite a long time making me think it was just a husk from molting but those are usually brown and don't have wings.
