Here is my best explanation:

'they are not connected' is the definition.

'sounds like something spies used to do at checkpoint charlie' is the subsidiary indication.

I cannot really see how this works, but

'spies' could be 'agents' (I've seen this before) and 'agents' is present in the answer.

The remaining letters 'free' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.

This explanation may well be incorrect...

'as' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Irish Times

(Other definitions for free agents that I've seen before include "uncommitted participants" and "people lacking commitment".)
