Its only a penalty if you go out of bounds on your own.
The rules applied were correct as far as I could tell, though it is a big confusing. Because Freeman was out of the pocket, that made the push out of bounds legal.
That said, I think it is garbage. If a defender pushes you out, you have a right to return and be the first to touch the ball. If you go out on your own, you're screwed. That makes things so simple and easy, which means the NFL will never implement it.
