Anytime DC went out to punt, the option was on the table

It's not like they go out there with "Punt 1" or "Punt 2" or "Punt Option". The deal was that when it was time to punt, that included the contingency that DC had the green light to take off with the ball. Now it's possible that that green light was only triggered in certain situations that this may or may not have fit (and again, I agree that Beamer in a perfect world would have remembered/or actioned to call off the option to take off).

Basically, Beamer taking action would have been by telling DC that he had a red light. Action was not taken and thus DC had the green light he had all night... DC decided to take action at that time.
