Snowden would be an idiot to come back. However, he could stay in the game halfway by setting up a clearinghouse in a very neutral country, as a drop box for anonymous whistleblowers from around the world.
This would be the fastest way for him to become less of an issue himself.

He can cut a deal with the government.
He can’t cut a deal with the American people. Somebody will off his ass.
